Soumik Datta's Silent Spaces: Episode 2


The second episode in Soumik Datta's SILENT SPACES is out now! The episode was filmed within a vacant Depot Mayfield during the winter lockdown of 2021.

Many of us have been limited to confined spaces during the pandemic, the impact felt both on our minds and bodies. In this second episode set in Manchester, brothers Soumik and Souvid Datta invite the viewer to break free of lockdown constraints, celebrating the power of #movement​ and our physical bodies.

The beats build from soft, organic drips (recorded on site) to a pulsating #EDM​ hook, charting the positive impact that dancing and letting loose has on the body and our #mentalhealth​.

Steeped in a history of olympic swimming teams, baths, a Post Office and a train station, the industrial Mayfield area, now repurposed as a nightclub, embodies the true spirit of rejuvenation and change - a perfect setting for “Movement” directed by Souvid Datta, composed and performed by Soumik Datta on live electronics with a team of prolific Manchester based contemporary dancer-choreographers.

Breaking the silence of iconic cultural spaces, closed nightclubs and empty museums that were out of action during the COVID-19 pandemic, SILENT SPACES is an original new series of 6 episodes produced by Soumik Datta Arts.
