Magical Honey marks 20th show at Corn Exchange Newbury

Sunday 5th May marked our 20th show of Magical Honey as we performed at Corn Exchange Newbury.
Inspired by Roald Dahl’s Matilda and Saraswati, the Indian Goddess of Knowledge, the show merges stories from the East and West. Magical Honey’s story started in 2020 thanks to seed commission from Akademi. We were then co-commissioned by Cambridge Junction, DanceEast and also Mercury Theatre Colchester.
Magical Honey is the combined efforts of 20 creatives and went on to win the Stobb’s New Ideas Award. Since our premiere at Cambridge Junction in May 2023 we have toured across the UK in locations ranging from Glasgow to Kent. Since then, over 800 people have seen the show!
One of the many ways in which Magical Honey is special is that we showcase the talents of young performers. We are one of the first South Asian dance companies to include performers as young as 8 years old in developing Magical Honey. Our show includes live violin playing, storytelling and magic.
Thank you to everyone who helped to get us here.
