opening new doors to the arts

We are huge fans of Balbir Singh Dance Company. This time round they tell a story of love and memory through dance…

Balbir Singh Dance Company (summer 2021) – Love and Spice

‘Love and Spice’

An elderly couple, still very much in love, look back on their lives together, reliving key moments through memories of the meals they shared. As the couple reminisce, their younger selves appear, and enact the memories of times past. The atmosphere is suffused with the aromas of a richly spiced life. With the couple’s advancing age, each has lost one of their senses: he the sense of smell; she the sense of taste. Can spices – in particular Black Pepper and Cardamom, the king and queen of spices – help them recapture what has been lost? Annapoorna, the goddess of food and nourishment, summons the butter-thief Krishna and the sweet-toothed elephant-headed god Ganesh to help her cook a special meal in the kitchen. Together they will try to bring back the couple’s lost senses, but what else will be rekindled along the way?

Love and Spice combines different art forms and cultural traditions in surprisingly delicious ways. Blending Kathak dance and live music, with a chef cooking live on stage . . . this is truly a multicultural feast for all the senses.
