Celebrating the history of the India Dance Festival

 



Choreographer Kalpana Raghuraman from The Hague has been part of the India Dance Festival since the very first beginning. In 2020, she was invited to create a new project with the dance schools that are participating in Colours of India. Instead of that, we will show one of her acclaimed pieces from 2011: Through the eyes of my city.

Kalpana Raghuraman from brings 20 dancers of the Indian diasporic community together and joins forces with them for the dance project Through the eyes of my city (Door de ogen van mijn stad). Diverse classical dance styles are stripped loose from their traditional structures, narratives, and music. She explores matters concerning identity and the breakdown of society into smaller groups; they also examine their own relationship with the city. You are invited to enter these divers worlds and be transported through the eyes of the dancers.

Live Q&A met Kalpana

Join us afterwards for a live Q&A with choreographer Kalpana Raghuraman at 20:45 hrs in which she will discuss new possiblitites & applications for Indian classical dances.
