The Sound of Tea

Creator Supriya Nagarajan uses her experience of synesthesia to explore the interplay between sound, sight, smell, taste and touch. This brand new work builds on the company’s ongoing exploration of multi-media presentations; this time directly engaging the audience in a musical interpretation of a tea ceremony.

Manasamitra brings you The Sound of Tea –a show about our relationship with TEA. New live music and performance art mixes with lighting and soundscapes, participatory tea rituals and technology-filled tables, capturing and reflecting the audience responses in the performance space.

The Dewsbury ‘NOT-THE-FRINGE’ Festival

The Dewsbury ‘Not-The-Fringe’ Festival: a series of monthly lunch-time events presented in partnership with Dewsbury Minster with the aim of developing a permanent monthly programme of locally-created activity. Manasamitra will work with local artists and up to 100 people to develop a regular and ongoing event based in Dewsbury. Each event will host a ‘guest artist(s)’ and will feature a local community-based group on the programme. The groups may present songs, poetry, speech or sound according to their preference, to create a mini-festival, showcasing and celebrating the diversity of the area featuring each of the art forms individually and collectively.
