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.

"Heart touching, magnificent, a clever stunning fusion of dance, music and embroidery"

Shemiza Rashid, Inspire FM

"an intense and accomplished demonstration of the power of movement-based theatre to tell stories"

TOTAL THEATRE (Yerma, 2015)

"Khayyam has a very strong storytelling instinct and a gift for expressive communication. She doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects, having tackled cultural taboos and injustices against women in the past."
