Sonia Sabri Company (SSCo) is a dance company encompassing classical, modern and urban dance styles, founded with the aim of reinterpreting the North Indian dance style of Kathak in a new way. Creator and artistic director Sonia Sabri sets out with the intention of pushing the boundaries of the style, while retaining its core elements.
By incorporating dance innovations and contemporary ideas not associated with this style of dance into its productions, SSC produces current and relevant art that is accessible to audiences of all ages and cultural backgrounds.
The company adds spacial and sensory dimensions into productions by presenting the Kathak style of dance in unusual settings and incorporating live music into performances wherever possible. It expressly seeks out new audiences to broaden appeal and draw influence from different audiences into the performance.
These approaches form the three main strands of the Company’s work, and exist side by side in a mutually enriching relationship of tradition and classicism to innovation.
