Love and Spice is a favourite in Balbir Singh’s repertoire. The piece was first performed in 2016 at Neston Town Hall, programmed by Cheshire Rural Touring Arts. Since then, the show has delighted audiences across the UK in both rural and urban communities. In 2019, an adaptation of the show ‘A Taste of Love and Spice’ toured to Leeds Care Homes in a joyful project supported by Leeds Inspired.
As part of ACE Strategic Touring we went on to work with 7 rural touring schemes across the north. We are now very pleased to be once again working with a number of exciting rural touring promoters in Autumn 2021 to bring the wooziness of love and spice to new communities. Performing live on the rural touring circuit is a richly rewarding experience for our musicians and dancers; the events have a special warm quality. François Matarasso expressed why so beautifully in March 2019:
“The heart of the reason why it’s different from a town centre art centre is that the audience knows each other. That contributes to the other thing that is distinctive, which is that rural touring events become part of shared memory, part of what builds community. So, for both of those reasons, I think that it is a very distinctive kind of artistic experience.”
