"2013. Asha’s hands shake as her sister Arundhati folds her wedding sari around her. 1973. Anjali hangs from a silk, her life pouring out of her. A well is drilled. Clean water. 40 years later, and her daughter now hangs in the balance."

Leyla played Asha the main character alongside, Lindsay Butcher and Shreya Kumar. Working with Filipe Gomes amazing soundscape the piece was a mixture of classical Indian dance and contemporary circus. Leyla and Lindsay were joint aerial choreographers and the show premiered at Theatre Royal Bury St Edmunds.
