As Vikas Kumar, Director of GemArts said: "It is fitting that GemArts and Sunderland Stages will showcase classical Odissi dance, first seen in the temples of eastern Indian, within one of our regions stunning minsters this May, and we are thrilled to have been given a platform to bring this fantastic work to the North East. Audiences to Gods & Mortals can expect a breathtakingly beautiful style of dance, marked by sculpturesque positions, with four of the UK’s top odissi dancers performing as part of the ensemble. This work will really compliment and enrich the exciting programming which the team at Sunderland Stages have put together, and GemArts looks forward to developing our work with them further going forward”.
