Just Add Water?

Our current love affair with all things culinary gets the Jeyasingh spin in a full-length dance piece, Just Add Water? In a world where differences between people can cause friction, Just Add Water? reminds us that cross-cultural eating is one of the true success stories of our time.

Six exceptional dancers share their memories of home cooking in a shifting world, to create a beguiling contemporary dance work that includes a score by Orlando Gough and text by performer and writer Rani Moorthy.


Shobana Jeyasingh was an early pioneer of east-west dance thinking, and her cross-cultural themes have influenced many.

Just when you think you have her figured out, she does something with her choreography that causes you to rethink it.

The Times

… an elegant and engrossing hour-long experience. You’re gripped throughout by the magnificently supple and sinuous dancing.
