Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], Nov 26 (ANI): Taking on the challenge of maintaining traditional art forms, the Bhramara Festival of Dance is all set to connect with the youth in a dynamic and fun format.
The Bhramara Festival of Dance is a two-day festival organised to rediscover and reimagine the Indian Classical Art forms, especially for the untrained eye. At a time when interest and participation of youth in traditional dance forms is diminishing, the Festival is an earnest attempt at trying to connect all generations and age groups through dance.
With innovative storytelling and gripping dance techniques, the festival promises to be a 48-hour dancing extravaganza which will be held in Mumbai in January 2019 and will explore the rich tradition of classical dance by reinventing the styles to make them relevant to young, modern audiences.
With the theme of 'Enchanting Epics,' the inaugural edition will have performances by young and dynamic artists from across India and abroad, as well as an added attraction in the form of the outdoor organic pop-up cafe along with folk and martial art performances.
One of the unique offerings of the festival is that no performance will be longer than thirty minutes.
The festival will also witness the India premiere of Kathak dance drama 'Son of the Wind' by the Leela Dance Collective that comprises of renowned dancers from California and India.
With traditional performances crafted for the modern eye, high production value and thorough research that showcases evolved dance while maintaining artistic integrity, the Bhramara Festival of Dance promises to be an unforgettable experience.
The two-day festival is scheduled for January 19 and January 20 at the Royal Opera House in Mumbai. (ANI)
