THIS EVENT TOOK PLACE IN 2010 RUNNING TIME: 60 MINS This Winter, feast your senses on Just Add Water?; a brand new, food-inspired show. Our current love affair with all things culinary gets a unique spin from top UK choreographer Shobana Jeyasingh in her latest full-length dance piece. In a world where differences between people can cause friction, Just Add Water? reminds us that cross-cultural eating is one of the true success stories of our time. Can Jeyasingh cook up a dance recipe that will give us a formula for survival in 21st century Britain? As with Heston Blumenthal’s legendary bacon and egg ice cream, familiar ingredients are shaken and stirred ballet with a dash of mango chutney; a trickle of Indian classical dance to liven up a slice of sweet pumpkin pie. Six exceptional dancers add their hard-won memories of home cooking in a shifting world to create a beguiling contemporary dance work that includes a score by Orlando Gough and text by performer and writer Rani Moorthy. "An elegant and engrossing hour-long experience... you’re gripped throughout by the magnificently supple and sinuous dancing" Mail on Sunday
