Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company (UK)

Bruise Blood / Faultline

Award-winning choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh presents a fierce and dynamic double bill, including the world premiere of a brand new work bringing together the work of Steve Reich and beatbox artist Shlomo.

The evening begins with the acclaimed Faultline. Featuring athletic dancers, an original film by Pete Gomes shot in Southall and Brick Lane, and a powerful score by sonic artist Scanner with music for voice by Errollyn Wallen, Faultline is a revealing reflection of the turbulent tensions amidst British-Asian youth today.

Shobana Jeyasingh 'excited restlessness' (The Times) results in a constantly evolving, explosive mix of Indian classical and western contemporary styles in which she explores and exposes the often hidden polarity within the urban experience.

'Dancing classical bharatanatyam with a scintilla of rap, these guys embody a 21st-century Babel.' (The Guardian on Faultline)
