Using the cyclic phenomenon of South Asian classical dance, where there is no beginning or end, Amina Khayyam's solo performance ONE tells contemporary stories of migrants tarnished by media and politicians for cheap exploitation, spreading fear for those risking their lives to make a better future.

Opening with a silent scream, BIRD poses a question that crosses the mind of many women stuck in abusive relationship: "Where I will go?" “Will anyone believe me?" High energy Kathak weaves the story to a specially commissioned live music score featuring Sohini Alam on vocals and Debaish Mukherjee on tabla.

"Powerful and captivating"
