Elixir is prepared to a rich recipe

NEW dance company Sadana brings its second work Elixir to the Espinosa Chute Centre in Berkhamsted next weekend.

Evocative and provocative, Elixir combines contemporary choreography, digital projection and original music with live song and a powerful visual art installation.

The work dives deep into our cultural relationship with water in a world where scarcity is an ever-increasing problem.

Sadana Dance was set up by the leading contemporary South Asian choreographer in the UK Subathra Subramaniam.

Suba is also a respected dancer, science teacher, schools’ TV presenter and education director of international arts-science climate change project Cape Farewell, and increasingly her choreography draws upon her background in science.

As well as watching the performance there will also be an opportunity next weekend to learn first-hand from the director by participating in an open workshop.

Two are available – one for adults, which will run on the Saturday and the other for children aged over seven which will take place on the Sunday.

Sadana Dance will be at the Espinosa Chute Dance Centre, Northbridge Road, Berkhamsted, on Saturday, May 19 and Sunday, May 20 at 7.30pm. There will be an adults’ workshop on Saturday, May 19 from 11am to 1pm and a children’s workshop on Sunday, May 20 from 11am to 1pm.
