Phoenix Dance Theatre presents

BLACK WATERS Wed 4 March | 7.30pm | Main House

In 1782, the owners of the Zong ship attempted to claim insurance on the lives of the 130 slaves that they threw overboard. Over 100 years later the Kala Pani prison was used by British colonial forces to incarcerate Indian freedom fighters who spoke out against the regime. Inspired by these two events, Black Waters explores issues of multiculturalism and fragmented identities in a fusion of western contemporary dance movement and classical Kathak Indian dance. An emotionally evocative piece that demonstrates from despair people can find value, inspiration and hope.

This show may contain haze and smoke.
