Babur in London Opening Night
26 Jun 2012
20.30, Sadler's Wells
A limited number of tickets for the opening night of Babur in London are reserved for Asia House Patrons, with the opportunity to attend a private post show party with Sadler's Wells supporters, Patrons and creative team.
In a London suburb, four young men and women are preparing a terrorist act. As their mission draws closer they are disturbed by the ghost of Babur, first Mughal Emporer, poet and warrior. Challenging their convictions, he calls them 'children playing in battle, in love with death', but what are their motives for interfering?
Babur in London tells a haunting story of four young people in today's society grappling with their beliefs, the consequences of their actions, and their feelings for one another. The piece combines the contemporary poetry of Jeet Thayil, with original music by Edward Rushton and directed by John Fulljames.
