Running Time: approximately 60 minutes no interval Suitable for all Elixir, the second work from Sadhana Dance, sees choreographer and artistic director Subathra Subramaniam continuing to navigate the confluence of arts and science. Elixir dives deep into our cultural relationship with water in a world where its scarcity is already a global issue. Drawing from the rich vocabulary of Bharata Natyam, four dancers interweave ritualistic and playful movements to explore struggles and survival, scarcity and instability. Subramaniam has teamed up with award-winning sculptor Josh Baum and her long-term collaborators, composers and visual artists Kathy Hinde and Matthew Olden. Together, they have created a powerful audio-visual experience which immerses the audience in the beauty and sound of water. The performance will be accompanied by an installation featuring sculptures and audio relating to Elixir Presented in Partnership with www.sadhanadance.com Post-show Café Scientifique with Quentin Cooper, presenter of BBC Radio 4’s Material World, who will chair a discussion between the artists and scientists involved in the show and the audience
