Traversing myth and realism, Kalki demonstrates that symbols of hope are as needed now as ever.

In Hindu mythology, Kalki is the prophesied tenth and final incarnation of Lord Vishnu; the avatar who is sent to earth to punish the wicked and rejuvenate existence by ending the dark and destructive period of Kali Yuga.

This production uses this ancient narrative to explore urgent questions raised by the crises facing the world today. Through classical Indian dance and poignant and often funny narrative, Kalki retells the Kalki myth through the experiences and perspectives of two women living in the present.

Kalki is a timely production that speaks to our universal capacity for hope, even in the darkest times.

What are ‘Pay What You Can’ tickets?

We believe that that arts should be accessible for all. For this reason some of our shows and events this year will be ‘Pay What You Can’, meaning that you decide how much you can or want to pay. This expands access to the arts for those who may not have been able to participate otherwise, or gives others the chance to support those who cannot by paying a bit extra.

You will see multiple prices available for each show or event. You can select whichever price you can afford or would like to pay – thank you.

Age Guidance: 16+
