“The Irish hard and soft shoe traditions within which Absolutely Legless perform, and my own company’s roots in Kathak have a surprising amount in common. Both feature strong rhythmic footwork, stories told through dance and song, and a lyrical graceful performance quality. I’m excited to be bringing these two dance styles together with their similarities and complementary approaches to entertaining audiences. It’s about creating a new kind of cultural conversation.”

Balbir Singh, Artistic Director
