Open from 10am Monday - Saturday

Occasionally We Skype

What do you get when you combine global families with mobile phones, performers with iphones and the accident of one person’s birth with another person’s reality?

Occasionally We Skype explores what it means to exist in a digitally connected, globalized world, where we have so many ways in which we can connect with other people, but we all still live in our own separate worlds.

Using Kathak dance, live music, spoken word, iphones, digital projection and theatre, Occasionally We Skype brings together the combined talents of the Sonia Sabri Company and Black Country Touring, with the able support of Sampad and The Arena Theatre, in a unique and compelling new show.


Occasionally We Skype is a part of Alchemy. Presented by Black Country Touring, Cast in Doncaster, Oldham Coliseum Theatre and Southbank Centre, London.
