Taj ExpressAfter a popular run here last summer, Taj Express returns to The Peacock, bringing dance, Bollywood stars and songs from the composer of the Slumdog Millionaire soundtrack to the West End. The story follows young composer Shankar who struggles with his music. It's only when he begins to follow in the footsteps of his idol, A.R. Rahman, that he discovers his path to success. The uplifting show is a colourful, high-energy production choreographed by one of Bollywood's top young choreographers, Vaibhavi Merchant, and directed by her sister Shruti Merchant. The pair were part of the creative team behind The Merchants of Bollywood, based on the life of their grandfather Shri Hiralalji and Vaibhavi herself.

 

About Peacock Theatre

This theatre is a major force on the national and international dance scene, with an innovative programme from Sadler's Wells that is keeping London's finger on the pulse. The Peacock Theatre became the company's base from 1996 to 1998 when a new theatre was being built on its Islington site and, since that time, has been a shining star in the Sadler's Wells sphere.
