Two unique events presented by India Dance Wales’ will take place at Everyman’s Open Air Festival in Sophia Gardens, Cardiff on Sunday July 10.
Bharatanatyam, a classic Indian dance will be performed by Shishyas (disciples) trained by India Dance Wales at 2.30pm. In this annual showcase, Shishyas of all ages, abilities and backgrounds come together from classes held in different cities for an exciting gala event.
At 8pm, India Dance Wales’ will present their production of Shakuntala, an epic story told through the classical dance style of Bharatanatyam with English narration and directed by Kiran Ratna. A tale of love, heartbreak, & forgiveness to reunite love, the play was the first Indian drama to be translated into a Western language, by Sir William Jones in 1789. In the following century, there were at least 46 translations in twelve European languages.
There is a special discount of £20 for those wishing to attend both shows if booked as one purchase.
