Karma Dance invites you to embark on an extraordinary journey of artistic exploration with “MIND THE DANCE.” This captivating triple bill delves deep into themes of individuality, multiculturalism, and the eloquent language of silence.*
Here’s what you can expect:
HOMO “HOme to my MOther”: A poignant and auto-ethnographical experience that courageously navigates the terrain of mental health struggles, intertwined with the deeply personal story of surviving childhood abuse. It also pays homage to the tender and unbreakable bond between a child and their mother, offering a unique perspective on resilience and healing.
HINDIviduality: Unraveling the essence of human existence, this performance boldly challenges societal norms that categorize individuals based on gender, color, sexuality, and language. It invites the audience to question these norms and explore the authentic nature of our shared humanity.
Silenced: An introspective journey into the hidden symphony of inner sounds, stemming from the choreographer Zoobin Surty‘s battle with hearing loss. Through a captivating fusion of movement and music, “Silenced” invites the audience to encounter the world from a unique perspective, where silence carries a profound and transformative resonance.
Leading this artistic endeavor is Zoobin Surty, the Artistic Director, whose creative prowess breathes life into these diverse and compelling themes. The production is produced by Amber Zamora with the guidance of mentoring Producer Callum Holt, ensuring that every facet of “MIND THE DANCE” is finely tuned to captivate and inspire the audience.
Please note that “MIND THE DANCE” explores sensitive content, including nudity and themes related to abuse and death. Consequently, this thought-provoking journey is intended for mature audiences aged 18 and above.
