'... as a viewer, I needed to feel what the dancers were going through and it worked well...' (Malcolm Keen, Pulse magazine)
Breaking Ground is based on Sonia Chandaria’s migration story - tracing her grandmother's move from her motherland Gujarat, India, to the fertile lands of Kenya in the 1940s, culminating with Sonia's own journey to the UK decades later.
