Blue Elephant Theatre, London

Tuesday, 16 Jul

£7.50 - £12.00

British Indian artist, Jaivant Patel presents a captivating evening of solo Kathak and Contemporary dance.  

Rooted in his own experience of being a homosexual man of different cultural heritages, Jaivant offers a fresh perspective on South Asian LGBTQ+ narratives, faith and spirituality. The evening celebrates two cultures and the intersectionality of living in one, while paying tribute to traditions, heritage and often untold stories of another. 

There will be Q&A at the end of the performance.

YAATRA is supported by Arts Council England with seed commissions from MAC Birmingham, Arena Theatre, Dance4, Gem Arts, Creative Black Country, Black Country Touring & SHOUT Festival.

 

Jaivant Patel is an award-winning independent dance artist, cultural producer and choreographer based in Wolverhampton. He is artistic director of Jaivant Patel Dance.

Jaivant Patel Dance makes work that ‘challenges the complexities of inherited notions, perceptions and stereotypes surrounding British-Asian identity.’

South Asian dance forms, aesthetics and principles inform and influence the creation of contemporary work targeted at diverse audiences.
