JUGNI – Sonia Sabri Co.

Dance |
4th October 2013

Jugni is co-comissioned by Gem Arts 

Jugni (meaning female firefly in Sufi poetry and Punjabi folk music) is an explosion of dance and music with soaring live vocals and percussion inspired by Qawaali, and powerful contemporary choreography driven by the passion in folkloric dance styles. 

Choreographer Sonia Sabri and Musical Director Sarvar Sabri build a heartfelt collaboration of a predominantly female cast of renowned artists making Jugni one of the most inspirational dance shows of the year.

Sonia Sabri Company return to the Brewery after being a huge part of our Asia to the Brewery festival in 2011 capturing the spirit and stories of real people  to dramatic, poetic and soul stirring effect. 

Jugni is based around Qawwali; fiery vocals, explosive song, combine with bold drumming and Kathak dance. 

Tracing its path from East to West by focusing on the real stories or real people, this powerful and exhilarating genre will be used to explore the importance and living relevance of Qawwali today.

Music, dance, storytelling, poetry and spectacular visuals will combine to create a living philosophy that reflects the energy, spirituality, values and aspirations of local communities. Jugni is a homage to all the women of the world.
