I think that’s what music can do; it can help us connect to each other
- Anoushka Shankar
Artists from the heart of the International Festival.
Anoushka Shankar, global musical star and sitar virtuoso, talks about the electricity of being on stage and the power of music to help us connect to each other.

The International Festival Portraits are a series of interviews with actors, choreographers, musicians, conductors, writers and directors talking about the art that they love.
The 2017 International Festival Portraits feature Alan Ayckbourn, Anoushka Shankar, Joshua Bell, Martin Creed, Mitsuko Uchida and Zinnie Harris in a series of personal reflections on their art-form, the nature of live performance, and the unique connection they experience with an audience every time they take to the stage.
