Balbir Singh’s international dance company come to Lesbury with a thrilling performance that fuses the north Indian dance form Kathak with western dance styles and live music.

And the show at Lesbury Village Hall on Saturday, October 15, will be preceded by a curtain-raiser performance by dance groups from Alnwick and Alnmouth.

Dhe Ki Ta is a triple bill of dance pieces from solo to duet, to quartet.

It opens with a classical Indian dance solo, showing the richness of storytelling, technique and rhythm footwork.

This is followed by the male duet and audience favourite Decreasing Infinity, which is performed to live music by a tabla player and beatboxer, who improvise a thrilling soundtrack around a driving rhythmic structure.

The evening concludes with Play of Percentages, performed by a quartet of dancers mixing Indian and Western dance styles.

Balbir and his dancers will be working with two older women’s dance groups – Dance For Fun, based at Alnwick Playhouse, and Dancing Girls, from Alnmouth, who will perform a short piece as a curtain-raiser to the evening’s show.

The show starts at 7.30pm. Tickets are £8, available from Alnmouth and Lesbury Post Offices, or online at www.highlightsnorth.co.uk
