Big Indian Dance Battle

o.l.v. Shamla Nandoe

International India Dance Festival

 In the month of October, events will be staged throughout The Hague highlighting Indian culture. Dance, music, cinema, and visual art: all of The Hague will breath the atmosphere of India. Platform Indian Dance, Kosmopolis Den Haag, Culturalis, and Korzo join forces for the India Dans Festival, a weekend highlighting both traditional and contemporary Indian dance in the Netherlands; from Bharatanatyam to Bollywood, and from Urban Indian to modern dance. The performances and workshops offer a stage to young and advanced talent; there is a debate about developments in contemporary and classical Indian dance, and delicious food.

In the daytime workshops may be attended in various dance styles. The program begins on Saturday evening with a real Indian Dance Battle. Sunday continues with the big hit performance Door de Ogen van mijn Stad with twenty Hindustani dancers from The Hague, and in the evening New India, a program full of short pieces with Revanta Sarabhai among others.
