A collaboration between the National Rural Touring Forum and South Asian performing arts organisation Kala Sangam is to give audiences in the most remote parts of England access to a new piece of culturally diverse work based on the folk stories, myths and legends of rural England and Asia.
A £38,000 grant from the Arts Council of England?s National Touring Programme, has made it possible for the tour to include 21 dates at village halls, schools, libraries and community centres from South Devon to Cumbria. The work, ?Rural Voices?, combines storytelling, tabla and harmonium, and South Asian dance.
