Our award-winning productions are rooted in Kathak and Indian classical music but draw on contemporary influences to create distinctive, relevant and accessible artistic experiences for audiences of all ages and backgrounds. We tour internationally to theatres, arts centres and festivals, as well as unconventional spaces, including schools, libraries, parks and museums. We are committed to presenting energetic work with live music wherever possible with high quality percussion, instrumental, and vocals as well as soundscapes.

Sonia Sabri Company also provides enjoyable, informative and meaningful learning and participatory opportunities for people of all ages, abilities and levels of experience, spanning dance, music, storytelling and visual arts to explore South Asian culture. SSCo offer a range of exciting classes, workshops, and training programmes for schools, community groups, HE/FE establishments and emerging dancers and musicians.

We love to collaborate and work with partner organisations and individuals to create bespoke performances and events. Sonia has choreographed and directed dance for film and music videos, ‘flash mob’ performances, mass participatory shows, festivals and cross-artform projects.
