“A powerful hard-hitting emotional production that had integrity, honesty and reality at its core” BBC
A bold dance-theatre that features Amina Khayyam working with Kathak’s intricate and detailed theatrical gestures of ang abhinaya, to subvert imagery of Bollywood beauty and Hollywood glamour that objectify women in indiscriminate abuse and violence. A Thousand Faces follows the story of a woman confronting a past violent relationship…
Ang Abhinaya is part of Kathak that is often paid less attention to in its current progression within a neo-classical approach. It is the expression of the body using major and minor limbs within kathak movement.
However, Amina Khayyam, renowned for her abhinaya, has developed new approaches in this new work by bringing influences of European experimental forms of physical theatre and mime movement to give the piece a wholly unique and innovative treatment, highlighting the contemporary condition.
