Nick Ellis is dedicated to the concept of “Song” and “Melody”. Some people call it folk, some just call it good old fashioned song craft. Currently based in Liverpool, Ellis blends streetscape narrative-noir with a classic British acoustic approach. 

Following his latest album 'Speakers' Corner', Nick returns to Liverpool's St Brides Church to grace the weathered brick walls with his rhythmic attack and quick-finger lucidity.

Food bank donations on the night will also be greatly appreciated.

Milapfest presents Swati Dance Company - Half of Me

13th April, 2019
The Capstone Theatre, Liverpool

- -


Half of Me is an emotive work that brings together cross genre of dance and theatre performed by highly charismatic Bharatanatyam dancers with modern choreography, using poignant story-line and spellbinding music.

Inspired by Satinder Kaur Chohan’s play by the same title, Half of Me is based on a modern day theme which shares often unheard stories of young people born through Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART) and draws parallel to a similar storyline based on motherhood from famous Indian epic Mahabharata.

The artistic idea of this work is grounded in the technique of Bharatanatyam, a classical South Asian dance form but has contemporary relevance in connecting with diverse audience.
