Kala ghoda Art Festival 2013


Traditions and Transitions

"Life is like dancing. If we have a big floor, many people will dance. Some will get angry when the rhythm changes. But life is changing all the time" - Miguel Angel Ruiz

They say dance is poetry in motion. Its 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.

Our thematic for the 2013 festival is 'TRADITIONS AND TRANSITIONS'.  We look forward to seeing you at our dance venue at Cross Maidan.

“We look for fixed points, but there are none, either in ourselves or outside in the universe. To live without these fixed points is our challenge.”            -J. Krishnamurti
Standing alone, looking out at the distant stars, have we not wondered what is it all about? What lies beyond the realms of the known? What lies beyond what our mind can perceive? What lies hidden in the deep recesses of our heart?
