Weaving Paths (through time)

Weaving Paths (through time)

A number of key influential Wulfrunians have resided at Bantock House over its 269-year long history. For three weeks from the end of April to May, Sonia Sabri Company, the leading light in the revival of (north Indian) Kathak dance will be resident at Bantock House. The Company will use the House, gardens, furnishings, objects and décor to create new dance. A number of local community groups will also be taking part in this professional project. “This is a great opportunity for people to see the House as they’ve never seen it before and to see dance as they’ve never quite seen it before.” Says Bobby Tiwana – BCT reSonAte Co-ordinator.

The project will enable internationally revered Kathak dancer and choreographer Sonia Sabri to chronicle something new into the history of the House; invigorating interest in this rare and complementary union.

Visitors will be able to talk and interact with the Company whilst they are working on-site during the residency. Entrance to the House is free and people are welcome to attend during the House opening hours over the three-week period to see the Company. The opening hours for Bantock House are Tuesday – Sunday 11am – 5pm. There will be short performances around the House and gardens on: Sunday 6 and 13 May 2007 at 2, 3 and 4pm and on Sunday 20 May at 1, 2, 3, 4pm.
