Korzo celebrates the start of the India Dance Festival with a fine ceremonial program. After the openings ritual, various dancers greet the public with short performances to welcome you and show you the wealth of the festival. You will see performances by Abhirup Roy & Deepsankar Bhattacharjee, Poernima Gobardhan will show an excerpt from her new preformance Mātā that will premiere later during the festival, and Monalisa Ghosh and her Kalajyoti Ensemble will give an exclusive demonstration of Gotipua.
After the break we had planned the new performance Samavāya by Bharatanatyam duo Renjith & Vijna. Due to illness, Renjith will show an adapted solo version tonight. Samavāya is a tribute to the Indian way of living in harmony with our environment.
