The Phoenix Dance Theatre return to London at the Peacock Theatre in March 2020 with 'Black Waters', a new and powerful piece of work that is  inspired by two separate historical events.

The owners of the Zong ship in 1782 claimed the insurance money on the lives of 130 slaves thrown overboard the vessel, while over a century later, the Kala Pani prison (“Black Waters” in Hindi) was utilised by the British to contain activists for Indian independence who were kept there in horrendous conditions.

Both of these stories now inspire a powerful commentary on colonialism in this exciting new work and is choreographed by Sharon Watson, Phoenix Dance Theatre’s artistic director in collaboration with  Dr Mitul Sengupta and Kolkata-based Rhythomosaic’s Shambik Ghose.
