Notes on Chai

Part of Alchemy

Jyoti Dogra’s Notes on Chai makes its UK premiere as part of Alchemy, following acclaimed performances in India.

The work is a collection of snippets of normal conversations interwoven with abstract sounds, enabling us to look afresh at our everyday lives in a multi-layered and humorous way.

The abstract sound explorations, inspired by Tibetan chanting techniques, Western harmonics and extended vocal techniques, create different sonic textures.

Using spoken word, music and dance, Jyoti juxtaposes our internal emotional life with the whirl of urban living.
