Just Add Water? (2009)
Our current love affair with all things culinary gets a unique spin from Jeyasingh in her new full-length dance piece.
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 hard-won 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 write Rani Moorthy.
Witty and inventive
Shobana Jeyasingh was an early pioneer of east-west dance thinking, and her cross-cultural themes have influenced many
Long one of the most individual voices on the British dance scene, Shobana Jeyasingh never ceases to surprise us. Just when you think you have her figured out, she does something with her choreography that causes you to rethink it
Jeysingh’s choreography has a propulsive rawness, an almost pugilistic desire to assert itself
Just Add Water? proves to be an elegant and engrossing hour-long experience. You’re gripped throughout by the magnificently supple and sinuous dancing.
