One | Amina Khayyam Dance Company | 5-10 August

One Fringe 2022

Very occasionally, a performance transcends the boundaries of the form in ways previously unseen. Critically-acclaimed, Kathak artist Amina Khayyam uses the cyclic phenomenon of Indian classical dance, where there is no beginning or end, to tell contemporary stories of migrants and refugees tarnished by media and politicians for cheap exploitation, spreading fear for those risking their lives to make a better future. Amina’s Kathak seeks to capture the first beat of that cyclic time and nest it until it becomes the one again – to suggest both the refugees and name callers are of the same cycle. Featuring live music from Debasish Mukherjee on tabla, Sohini Alam vocals, Iain Mchugh on cello and Jane Chan with paranth.
