About Fela

The Svapnagata India Festival culminates in a new collaborative production by Akram Khan and Nitin Sawhney. Confluence fuses Sawhney's music with Khan's unique blend of classical kathak and contemporary technique.

It takes the form of a conversation between two friends and artistic collaborators, looking back on personal experiences, respective influences and a productive creative partnership.

Exploring how the independent stories of these two kindred spirits converged, Confluence offers the opportunity to not only re-visit their collaborative work together (Kaash, zero degrees and bahok) but also to understand the psychological, emotional and spiritual processes involved in their work. Confluence will also include a new piece of choreography by Akram Khan to a specially created composition by Nitin Sawhney.

There will be a free pre-show discussion exploring themes arising from the Svapnagata Festival with a panel of guests including Akram Khan and Nitin Sawhney curated and chaired by Maya Jaggi, award-winning cultural journalist for The Guardian.

Friday 20 November Neelam Mansingh Chowdhry: Nagamandala Performance: 19.30. Tickets: £10 - £32

Weaving together traditional folk tales, Neelam Mansingh Chowdhry's beautiful play Nagamandala tells the story of an unhappy bride who fills her loneliness by conjuring fantasies, dreams and illusions to give meaning to her life. The meaning of creativity is explored to its fullest as fictional and real characters intermingle, and the lines between the visible and the invisible are blurred. Performed in Punjabi with English surtitles.
