A Quarter Century of Innovation
“Our work is rooted in both a political vision of a Britain that is culturally coherent in new and unexpected ways and a theatrical vision that aims to persuade new audiences to enjoy, delight in and be challenged by the best in contemporary dance. We will continue to contribute to the fascinating and complex cultural dialogues that define urban life in the 21st century.
We see connections where others see only differences and we seek to make these connections through choreographic practice, through the imaginative choice of collaborators and through the use of a wide range of platforms and media for the dissemination of our work.”
In 2013, Shobana Jeyasingh Dance celebrates 25 years of creative working, marking a quarter century of innovation. In 1988, Shobana choreographed her seminal work Configurations, which was a significant starting point in the life of her company and her career.
Over the subsequent 25 years, Shobana has produced over 50 imaginative and critically acclaimed works, engaging with a wide range of diverse audiences in the United Kingdom and around the world. Adventurous and experimental, Shobana has pioneered collaborations with some of today’s most exciting composers and designers.
To celebrate this important landmark in the company’s history, we have created an exciting three-year programme of artistic work, as well as education, participation and learning.
The first production in this programme is entitled Classic Cut.
Alongside this, we have launched a fundraising campaign to enable us to continue to create work that engages audiences, explores themes of social difference and cohesion and to forge collaborations with composers, musicians, visual artists and designers.
