As part of Peterborough's Diwali celebrations, Phizzical Productions in association with Vivacity Culture and Leisure present Circle of Light, a spectacular visual arts experience inspired by the stories in the Ramayana. The Circle of Light is an explosion of light, colour and dance which will be performed on stage in Cathedral Square on the evening of Saturday 22 October. With choreography by Subhash Viman, the production blends urban, contemporary and classical Indian dance forms and involves a cast of dancers and actors sourced from the local area. Live music fusing traditional Indian instruments such as the tabla and sitar and western instruments, composed by Devesh Sodha, will accompany the performance.

Phizzical have previously taken part in Leicester's Diwali, which is said to be the largest Diwali celebration outside of India.

The event is family friendly, free for all and wheelchair accessible. There will be four showings of the performance with the first starting at 4.30pm.
