Theatre Visit: ‘Half of Me’

November 7, 2019 @ 19:30


Inspired by Satinder Kaur Chohan’s play by the same name, ‘Half of Me’ explores the often unheard stories of young people born through Assisted Reproductive Technologies, such as IVF. The story draws parallels with the famous Indian epic the Mahabharata, in which the biological mother Kunti meets her abandoned son Karna after he is grown into a young man and questions his loyalties. A contemporary, relevant story told through the classical South Asian dance form Bharatanatyam, ‘Half of Me’ is performed by some of the most charismatic dancers in the UK. The modern choreography by Swati Raut is accompanied by spellbinding music by Praveen D. Rao, a versatile music composer from India. This performance also features a post-show discussion, where you’ll have the opportunity to ask any burning questions. The majority of performances at Kala Sangam are now Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen a show. Please Note: Even though you don’t have to pay until after you’ve seen the show places still have to be booked in advance. Once you have confirmed you are attending, we can book your ticket which you will need to enter the performance. Please e-mail sibylle@leedscombinedarts.org.uk to reserve your place, (limited ticket availability).
