Kala ghoda Art Festival 2014


“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 2014 festival is 'GATI’. Watch over 35 dance groups interpret the theme in the dance form of their choice. We look forward to seeing you at our spectacular dance venue at Cross Maidan.

Sampradayam by Mallika Sarabhai

India’s Bhakti movement of the medieval period has close resemblance to Islamic Sufism, which appeared around the same time.  The emotional momentum of Bhakti yoga is considered to be the surest bet to enlightenment.  Bhajans always played a vital role in generating a great spiritual force towards salvation. Sampradayam, choreographed by Dr. Mallika Sarabhai, stresses the change in pace and momentum that the music highlights, the frenzy of the tempo of bhajans and kirtans.

Presenting a contemporary fusion piece that is an excerpt from the 2012 show entitled “Pranam in White” that debuted in San Francisco. "Pranam” being a reverential salutation, “in White” signifying the unnamed divine. This was an interfaith collaboration work exploring the concepts of “greeting the divine” in different dance traditions from the Isreal, the Middle East, Persia, India and Central Asia. The choreographies striped down the movements and ornamentation to highlight the movement qualities outside of their cultural context. Colleena will present her solo work from ‘Pranam in White'.
