Mughal Miniatures: Animal Paradise by Sonia Sabri Company

Mughal Miniatures: Animal Paradise is a fun and upbeat outdoor performance event for all the family, which celebrates and takes inspiration from the exquisite traditional art of Indian and Persian miniature painting.

Performers in sumptuous costumes create vibrant and colourful mini worlds of dance, music and puppetry.

You are invited to step back in time to an exquisite gathering where human and creature meet and interact. Explore the relationship between humans, animals and the natural world and whether it’s possible for the three to live in harmony.

Through dance and music, Sonia Sabri Company unearth untold stories, transform lives, and create small miracles. The Company is one of the leading contemporary South Asian dance and music companies in the UK. It has an international reputation for presenting Kathak dance in a contemporary context, without diluting its integrity. The company creates work relevant to modern audiences, that is inspired by Eastern and Western cultures, and the rich possibilities that arise when they meet.
