Dancer and founder of World Bhangra Day, Hardeep Sahota presents a visual dictionary of movement, using dance and photography to explore the rich history of Bhangra.

Known globally for it’s energetic and upbeat qualities, Bhangra has a global reach with varied audiences around the world, however its rich history and depth are not widely understood.

In an attempt to honour the narrative of Bhangra and celebrate the vibrancy of performance, dancer Hardeep Sahota has created a catalogue of movements and gestures to form a visual story. The collaboration between performance, photography and light captures the fleeting nature of dance, presenting the work as a gorgeous ‘light painting’ of movement.

The images created by collaborator, Tim Smith are dynamic, creating the illusion of a sculpted or painted work, and have been taken across Yorkshire including in Yorkshire Sculpture Park’s garden.

The catalogue of images and a video demonstrating the ‘light painting’ are available to view online.
