Kala ghoda Art Festival 2015

Dance

“While I dance I cannot judge, I cannot hate, I cannot separate myself from life.  I can only be joyful and whole. This is why I dance.”
-Hans Bos?

They say dance is poetry in motion. It’s when thoughts and emotions break free from inhibitions, a dance performance is born. This year at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival delight yourself in the visual beauty of several classical and contemporary forms. Allow India's most celebrated dance groups to get you on your feet. We will be hosting interesting workshops too.

Our thematic for the 2015 festival is "DIKSHA - SUBLIME INITIATION". We look forward to seeing you at our spectacular dance venue at Cross Maidan.

Dance of Mystics' by Manjari Chaturvedi (Exploring the feminine in spiritual poetry)

07:10 to 07: 55 at Cross Maidan

Dance of Mystics manifests the mystical thought of devotion and love for the Almighty through an ecstatic dance encapsulating the divine reaching out . Poets and spiritual saints such as Rumi, Kabir, Hazrat Amir Khusrau, and Baba Bulleh Shah are known to characterize themselves in the feminine form - as the wife, bride and beloved of the Almighty. Renowned dance exponent, teacher & Choreographer Manjari Chaturvedi portrays this divine communication, this prayer between the form and formlessness .(

08:00 to 08:45 at Cross Maidan


Our mythology has a rather beautiful concept of Devatmayee - the Soul of the Gods. She is many yet she is one, seeking definitions in tranquility, radiance, endurance, time, devastation and in our expressed and unexpressed words - Devatmayee is about a woman's journey through the meandering lanes and layers of self-realisation.  (Manipuri)
