Amina Khayyam Dance Company | A Thousand Faces


a heresy to burn a book, but acceptable to burn a woman…

Experience bold dance theatre that breaks new ground. Blending elements of the South Asian dance style Kathak with physical theatre and mime, A Thousand Faces subverts the imagery of Bollywood beauty and Hollywood glamour to explore the objectification of women in indiscriminate abuse and violence.

“a powerful, hard-hitting emotional production that had integrity, honesty and reality at its core.” - BBC

Performers: Amina Khayyam, Jane Chan
Musicians: Debasish Mukherjee (tabla), Lucy Rahman (vocals), Iain McHugh (cello)
Presented by GemArts and Northern Stage
