COMMON TONGUE

An Indian Summer (AIS) is both a celebration of and an introduction to Indian culture, traditions and people through film, food, talks, workshops, exhibitions & more. The annual week long festival is organized at the Curve Theatre in Leicester (UK) and supported by The Arts Council, British Council and South Bank Centre.

Common Tongue is a multimedia show combining electronic and classical music, spoken word, dance and digital visuals. The Indian classical artforms of tabla and kathak are remixed and made contemporary, in a series of songs told by lead artists from India and the UK.

Artforms weave, clash and converse to ask these questions, in a show which will appeal both to those excited by basslines, electronica and hip hop, and a generation raised on the purism and discipline of the Indian classical arts.
