Shobana Jeyasingh presents Too Mortal

Thursday 3rd – Saturday 5th April 2014, St Mary the Virgin Church, Bath

“Iconic…..powerfully suggestive of submerged stories and sentiments” The Guardian

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance presents a beautiful mesmerising work, strikingly set within an historic church in the City of Bath. Six women dressed in red costumes, dancing within the pews, weave a story that moves between power and quiet reflection. Are they charting a journey from cradle to grave? Or cast adrift on a wooden sea?

The soundtrack by sound artist Cassiel remixes Tenebrae Responsories by James MacMillan with chiming bells, repeated electronic and vocal motifs, infusing calm solemnity with tense, sometimes ominous flavours.

Watch this a short video of this beautiful, mesmerising work for historic churches.

Free Event, all welcome but please note that the performance is not suitable for children under the age of 4 (Running Time 20 mins).

Book here for this free performance as capacity is strictly limited.

Book here to join Shobana Jeyasingh Dance company class on saturday 5th April 2014

Co-presented by ICIA & Bath Dance with additional support from Arts Council England
