We take water for granted everyday. We bath in it, we drink it, and we’re made up of 70 percent of it. That’s exactly the reason why choreographer Subathra Subramaniam is exploring our relationship with water in her new dance piece, Elixir.

Inspired by her time living with the Inuit communities in Nanavut, Canada, and Greenland, and her travels through the Arctic and India, Subathra’s Elixir examines man’s relationship with water.

Elixir is set to an original soundtrack and features sculpture and live singing. Fusing traditional Bharata Natyam steps with contemporary choreography, it also draws on Subathra’s background as a science teacher.

Sadhana Dance presents Elixir at The Point in Eastleigh on February 9.

Tickets cost £8 to £12 from The Point, Eastleigh on (023) 8065 2333 or go to thepointeastleigh.co.uk.
