TRAILER FOR HUM IN MY HEART

A unique project innovated by Amina Khayyam Dance Company is in development with The Artta for production in Woking and Luton this year.

The Hum in My Heart tells Four different stories in Four different places, each developed from the ‘local’ through Kathak and physical theatre for a compelling exploration of mental health. 

A unique regional project exploring and giving voice to issues of mental health in communities when there is no word to describe it, where shame and social stigma follow it, where no one is willing to acknowledge it…  uses the south Asian dance Kathak as the core narrative collaborating with physical theatre and live music to tell the stories which the Company developed in marginalised and disenfranchised communities across four regions – Woking, Birmingham, Luton and Tower Hamlets – working with women who are beginning to confront the social stigma of mental health – incorporating their real life experiences. Each venue will have a story tailored from the ‘local’ vernacular and dynamic.
