Sujata Banerjee Dance Company - A Sacred Thread

I've just purchased tickets for a forthcoming production by the Sujata Banerjee Dance Company at the Southbank Centre.
The name of the show is "A Sacred Thread" and is to be performed on Wednesday 15th October at 8pm. Tickets are very limited, so be quick if you want to attend the performance.

This innovative dance theatre work uses the multi-layered fabric of Kathak, narrative and original music to retell the story of an extraordinary woman from the 18th century who made an enormous impact in society. Shobna Gulati, the TV actress from Coronation Street, plays the lead role. Through the powerful medium of dance, drama and music the programme explores current issues concerning women and gender equality, children and human rights, and environment and sustainability. The programme is directed by the renowned theatre personality Nona Shepphard and uses special compositions of Pandit Birju Maharaj.
