Mugam’s Secret 2000

Photo Andrew Fisher

A tale of desire and expression…. Mugam was a secret language developed in the Sixteenth Century to express forbidden desires. It was a language for men. In this work accompanied b a passionate score a woman takes up the challenge, revealing the unexpected and playing with convention. Classical Indian and contemporary with playful intent and deadly accuracy.

Choreographed and performed by Liz Lea

Costume by Elissa Ferguson

Lighting by Joseph Mercurio

“ an amazing solo performance”                                              St Petersburg Times, August 2000
