A Taste of Love and Spice

A Taste of Love and Spice


Thackray Medical Museum in partnership with Balbir Singh Dance Company presents A Taste of Love and Spice, a feast of dance, music and food to rekindle the senses.  

_A taste of Love and Spice_ combines different art forms and cultural traditions in surprisingly delicious ways. Blending kathak dance and live music, a chef cooks live on stage as the story of an elderly couple, still very much in love, unfolds before our eyes.  The themes of love and spice are explored by the dancers, accompanied throughout by the sights and sounds of nourishing food.  Sizzling pans, leaping flames and pungent aromas of spices heighten the audience experience.
