The Rose and the Bulbul. A Promenade Performance.

Kamal Kaan, actor
Sita Thomas, dancer
Kali Chandrasegaram, dancer and choreographer
Arieb Azhar, singer
and Company

Singers, actors, dancers and musicians celebrate the unity amidst diversity expressed through the symbols of the rose and the bulbul (nightingale). The performance will take place on the Tea Lawn at Lauderdale House and in Waterlow Park. Storytellers, dancers and musicians will create an experience to bring alive the space of the garden, and the audience will meet the Rose and the Bulbul, who come truly to understand their present only through a journey into each other’s past. Statues become dancers as the audiences are led in succession through a Mughal garden, a European walled garden and finally into open grounds, celebrating the synthesis of Islamic, Christian, Pagan and Hindu traditions. The Rose and the Bulbul is above all a story of love and acceptance. It is a family-friendly performance with professional and community-based performers that taps into the love affair that humans have with creating gardens. It will be dedicated to the memory of MP Jo Cox: “We are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us”.

The performance of dance, music and spoken word was inspired by the ideas that shaped the gardens at Stockwood Park, Luton. The title ‘Rose and Bulbul’ is derived from the significance of the rose as the symbol of beauty and perfection both in Persian literature and equally important in the English heritage as a Tudor emblem. The bulbul is the Indian equivalent of the nightingale which represents the woods and wilderness beyond the cultivated garden. The performance brings together the talent of outstanding young actor-writer Kamal Kaan (‘While the Water Weeps Next to the Water’, BBC Radio ‘Headline Ballads’ 2016); director Sita Thomas (Shakespearean scholar, Milkshake presenter and Bollywood dancer) and the popular choreographer-dancer Kali Chandrasegaram.

Madame Viardot's Salon

Members of Salon Musical and Test-of-Time Entertainment

Songs, violin and piano music by Fauré, Chopin, Duparc and Elgar
Poetry by Baudelaire

Salon Musical is a unique show of theatre and music where audience members escape the every-day and venture into a world of beautiful music and poetry as well as flirtation, gossip and intrigue. A cast of five young professional performers, two singers, an actor, a violinist and a pianist, all graduates from the top London music and drama conservatoires, play historical characters and weave together music and scripted dialogue. The show's creation has involved academic research as well as professional direction and costume design.

Experience has shown that the shows bring alive the past in an informative yet entertaining way. The performers engage with the audience throughout the evening to create a relaxed, immersive and intimate social gathering.

Picture yourself as a guest at the home of celebrated 19th century singer, composer and pianist Pauline Viardot, being introduced to emerging composer Gabriel Fauré, eminent and provocative poet Stéphane Mallarmé and their protégés. They will be performing their latest music and poetry and you will witness their spontaneous music-making.
