A fantastic evening last night with Sonia Sabri Company
With 'Jugni', which means female firefly, Sonia Sabri Company explores the manifold aspects of being a woman today. The performance is a close collaboration between four excellent female dancers and four live musicians who interlink 'pure dance' with narrative elements to evoke emotional responses and to celebrate the female body and voice.
Three events coming up today.

Musical Continua: perception and technology research seminar, Teaching Block TB6, 4pm
Jugni, Sonia Sabri Company dance show, Ivy Arts Centre, 7.30pm
