Echoes & I Imagine is a double bill of dance by Aakash Odedra Company.

Echoes, choreographed by Aditi Mangaldas, is a stunning approach to traditional Kathak dance. Here, both choreographer and performer listen attentively to the echoes of our life. Aakash dances majestically across a stage invaded by cascades of bells conjuring up his roots and ties.

I Imagine is Aakash’s exploration of dance-theatre by embodying three generations of migrants through masks and acting. The result? A visceral and witty take on identity and longing. Dozens of piled suitcases on stage are unlocked to unveil a very touching performance.

Programmed in partnership with The University of Nottingham’s Manuscripts and Special Collections as part of the exhibition, Threads of Empire: Resistance and Rule in Colonial India c.1740-1840.
