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.

“To see a world in a grain of sand/ And a heaven in a wild flower,/Hold infinity in the palm of your hand/ And eternity in an hour.”                -William Blake

With Simple Dreams Ishara returns to the essence of puppetry and imagination. Where the puppeteer creates celebratory images with simple objects and movement. Music as always plays an important role in this non-verbal visual poem on nature and life.
An interplay of animation, of objects and dance creates vivid images of nature, birds, fishes, animals , human beings and the cycle of life; created with sticks , umbrellas and dance.
