I Imagine

Company production | 2016

I Imagine, combines beautiful choreography with powerful spoken word as Aakash collaborates with gifted, award-winning poet and fellow Sky Arts Academy Scholar Sabrina Mahfouz. Aakash and Sabrina explore the imagined future and the confines of skin. The experimental piece features masks made by Californian based Circus Practitioner David Poznanter, (credits include being Aamir Khan’s personal trainer for the blockbuster film Dhoom 3), and explores the dynamism of Dance/Performance Theatre.
