SEVENS, is a new triple bill of Bharatanatyam and Kathak dance with live music from one of the UK’s leading choreographers Nina Rajarani MBE.

The programme features three captivating pieces:

  • Seven Snags: A flirtatious courtship, the choreographic equivalent of an obstacle race, this fast-paced ensemble is rhythmic, full of exciting dynamics and laced with challenging cross-rhythms.
  • Seven Steps: A duet by Nina Rajarani MBE and vocalist/composer Y Yadavan, based on ‘saptapadi’ (seven steps) With each step, the couple take a vow that is beautiful, simple and timeless.
  • Seven Sins: This thought-provoking, nuanced piece questions the social norms, performed by the full ensemble of seven dancers and musicians.
