BRADFORD Cathedral will host an exhibition exploring traditions, rituals and memories of loved ones next week.

Performance artist Yuvel Soria is inviting audiences to AJAYU Transitorio at the Cathedral on Friday, 8 July.

Inspired by the traditional celebration of the Day of the Dead in Bolivia, AJAYU Transitorio invites audiences to sit around a table with flowers, candles and food and take part in conversations, interspersed by live dance, poetry and music.

Yuvel Soria said: “Developing AJAYU Transitorio for an in-person audience after the challenges of the past two years is extremely exciting.

“A big part of the project is gathering with communities. Welcoming the community to a familiar space and transforming it for a moment in time through dance, music and poetry to celebrate culture, traditions, memories and loved ones.”

Audiences can expect contemporary multi-cultural dance styles (including Bolivian dance, Kuchipudi dance and Afro-diaspora styles) reflecting on traditions surrounding death.

Rosie Watt, Creative Producer, said, “This is a great opportunity to experience different cultures, and a chance to connect with others.

“Bradford is a creative place, and one of community, and we’re looking forward to meeting lots of people, families and friends.”

Tickets are ‘pay what you decide’ for both the 2pm and 7.30pm performances, but must be reserved in advance at
