BRADFORD’S Kala Sangam has introduced a Pay What You Decide scheme as part of its new season. The intercultural arts centre has promised an inspiring programme of events through the spring to serve the city’s diverse communities.

Pay What You Decide allows audiences to pay what they can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, even paying nothing if they dislike the show.

The season showcases an eclectic mix of dance, music, exhibitions, poetry, theatre and discussions. There are traditional South Asian dance styles performed with modern day themes, from the likes of award-winning Seeta Patel with a Bharatanatyam interpretation of The Rite of Spring (May 23), to YAATRA (May 2) performed by British Indian artist Jaivant Patel.

There will be a Mixed Programme (March 21) of contemporary dance by Leeds-based dance company Mobius Dance and a performance of Crackle. Dust. (April 12) unveiling women’s resilience through movement, live sound and spoken word by Company of Others.

Exhibitions include Autism/This Is Me (April 4) by Saima Kaur, capturing the difficulties and delights of having a child who doesn’t fit into the average world. Humanising (May 30) shows paintings from BIASAN that humanise refugees and asylum seekers, rather than showing them as victims.

This Is Who I Am (February 21) presents first-hand accounts of LGBT+ people seeking asylum in the UK with ice&fire and the Peace Museum. International Women’s Day is celebrated with performances of The Vagina Monologues (March 6-8) by the Surviving Sistas.
