Bells at Victoria Park, Blackheath Common & Turnham Green Park
Akademi presents their magnificent, large scale outdoor production Bells in collaboration with the international Belgian company, Theatre Tol, in three outer London boroughs: Lewisham, Hounslow and Barnet over the summer of 2012 as part of the Mayor of London’s outdoor festival, Showtime.
The spectacle will unite the best international talent in South Asian dance as well as flying aerialists from Theatre Tol. The combination of artistic cultures and disciplines promises to create a breathtaking magical experience with a dramatic wedding procession, the appearance of aerial fairies and an accompanying Kathak performance to celebrate the memorable finale.
Bells features the choreography of Kumudini Lakhia, with additional choreography by Urja Desai Thakore and Amina Khayyam.
Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy this magical experience as angels soar through the air above you.
