A Curve Young Company and Community Production

Bollywood Jane

Synopsis

Share:

Saris, sequins and lip-syncing love songs – if only life could be so simple.

In this Bollywood-spectacular meets kitchen sink drama set on Leicester’s famous Golden Mile, 16-year-old Jane and her mum, Kate are struggling to make ends meet. Heading to the local Bollywood cinema for work, Jane becomes mesmerised by the ultimate rom-com blockbuster, Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge.

As a friendship with local boy and cinema co-worker Dini looks to promise Jane her own happy ever after, she daydreams of escaping her reality. Swept into the technicolour world of her vivid imagination, Jane becomes the leading lady in her own Bollywood film.

Bringing a fusion of extravagant East-West dance styles to Leicester’s own Cultural Quarter, Bollywood Jane is a visual feast. Showcasing the dynamic setting of Belgrave Road, this Made at Curve production features a talented local community company with direction by Siobhán Cannon-Brownlie (The Crucible, 2018) and choreography by Kathak and contemporary dancer Kesha Raithatha (Traces, 2018).

Bollywood Jane features the songs Tujhe Dekha To, Ruk Ja O Dil Deewane & Zara Sa Jhoom Loon Main.
