Oral History Project Sharing
Akademi’s Oral History Project has seen more than 30 pupils from across Krishna Avanti Primary School (Harrow), Pagrav Dance Company and Sanskruti Cambridge taking part in a multi-layered project with oral historian, Laura Owen, and dance artists, Olivia White, Parbati Chaudhury, Krishna Zivraj-Nair and Linnea Husmann.
Participants have collected precious oral testimonies from older family and community members, and used this experience to devise a choreographic response, drawing upon themes of diaspora, migration and identity.
On Sunday 28th February, students from Pagrav Dance Company and Sanskruti Cambridge shared their working process and movement responses with each other, the Akademi Team and an audience of invited guests. Participants and audience members alike enjoyed this moment of connection in these times and many hearts were touched by the exploration of such unique and personal journeys.
