Information

A unique performance/installation narrating local stories originated during Covid.

Amina Khayyam Dance Company engaged local Birmingham women with creative activity reaching them through WhatsApp and Zoom. Using traditional Kantha – a south Asian form of embroidery, participants worked with Artists Abeda Begum and Bhajan Hunjan to tell their Covid experiences and stories.

In the final part of the project the Kanthas are kinetically progressed to Kathak by Amina Khayyam to a music score of Borodin’s Nocturne specially adapted by Jonathan Mayer to Indian instrumentation.

In association with Ashiana Community Project and Birmingham Settlement.
