Virago

A PAY WHAT YOU DECIDE EVENT

‘Virago’ is a new dance-digital solo production from Sonia Sabri, Artistic Director of SSCo, collaborating with Ludic Rooms.

‘Virago’ is vibrant, compelling, brave and dynamic. It explores the light vs dark and the real vs fairytale versions of female existence, teasing the audience with perceptions and misconceptions of the woman and gender.

Virago means ‘female warrior’ in Latin and Vira is ‘the brave one’ in Hindi. A Virago is a woman of great stature, strength, and courage. The show explores the choices and decisions we must make as we go through life regardless of gender: there is no clear path to do the right thing, only options, and not all of them are easy.
Sonia’s signature ‘Urban Kathak’ language merges on stage with digital artistry, alongside a sound-score combining spoken word and music, with rich and diverse influences: a cacophony of voices from Europe, the Middle East, South Asia and Africa, representing and speaking to women worldwide, but appealing to all of our humanity, regardless of gender and culture.

The digital elements bring a new experimental layer of sound, light and image manipulation into this unique sensory dialogue with the live body.

‘Virago’ is uncompromising, thought provoking and inspiring. It is both a protest and a celebration. Come and be part of the revolution.

Virago is a co-production with mac birmingham and The Old Rep Birmingham
