Manasamitra is an artist-led organisation based in Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, delivering a range of exciting and original cross-cultural experiences. Our work is rooted in the creative vision of Supriya Nagarajan, a classically-trained Carnatic singer who is inspired by not only the traditions of her South Asian roots but also by a drive to work with new ideas, forms and aesthetics from across the world, presented within a contemporary British context.

The Sound of Tea

Manasamitra is excited and delighted to bring you The Sound of Tea –a show about our relationship with TEA.

After a year of working remotely and in digital format, we can present, live, new music and performance art mixed with visuals and soundscapes, participatory tea rituals and technology-filled tables with touch-screens for audience members to interact with the performance in real time.

Creator Supriya Nagarajan uses her experience of synaesthesia to explore the interplay between sound, sight, smell, taste and touch. This re-worked version of the show builds on the company’s ongoing exploration of multi-media presentations, directly engaging the audience in a musical interpretation of a tea ceremony.

Slumber Stories

Manasamitra bring a brand new performance, weaving stories from around the world and music into an interesting tapestry that entertains.

Mapping The Music

Mapping the Music is a  sonic exploration of the sculptural work of Barbara Hepworth by composer and director Supriya Nagarajan.
