An exploration of the relationship between two art forms, Dancing with Words is the culmination of a project that has seen dancers and poets collaborating to push boundaries and take new, exciting approaches to creating work.
The pairs have worked together to incorporate movement and words - with the artists inspiring and being inspired by each other simultaneously to create a trilogy of entirely new performances.
Join us on National Poetry Day for a unique evening, showcasing the work produced by this innovative project with performances by:
Lydia Allison and Akeim Toussaint Buck
Shamshad Khan and Sophie Hutchinson
Funded by Arts Council England and produced by Books Up North, in partnership with Kala Sangam.
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!
We want to encourage more people to come and see shows at Kala Sangam, more often. Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for a show in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.
Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the show. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven't enjoyed it at all, you don't have to pay anything.
All money collected helps pay the artists who have performed, and we therefore hope you will give generously.
Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the show starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.Register for tickets here.
