"Clorinda Agonistes"

Ahead of their performances at the Oxford Playhouse, Shobana and dancers will present, perform extracts, discuss the creative, choreographic, and musical processes for the new Clorinda Agonistes. This piece is inspired by the heroine of Claudio Monteverdi’s celebrated work, Il Combattimento, based on the proud and fiery Muslim warrior Clorinda who defiantly refuses to reveal her name.

Followed by a Q&A session and reception.
