The “Bollywood and Multicultural Dance Festival” opens its gates once more on June 19th 2014. The Festival will last from the 19th till the 22nd of June 2014 and will take place at the historical “Dora Stratou” Theatre, in the center of Athens, with a view of the green hill of Filopappou.
This unique multicultural festival will become – once again- a great cultural event during the summer period in Athens.
The Festival is under the aegis of the International Dance Council (CID – UNESCO) and it is organized by the Artistic Studio Oriental Expression and the Hellenic-Indian Society for Culture and Development.
Greece has always been at the crossroads between the East and the West, where diverse cultures came together and have been formed throughout the years. From India and the Middle East to North Africa and the Mediterranean Basin, great civilizations came in close contact exchanging various characteristics, mainly related to the culture and art. The Festival aims to highlight these particular features with the emphasis on the Art of Dance and Music, and to provide the opportunity for those interested to discover the magic and the beauty of this peaceful coexistence of nations – beyond geographical boundaries – in the modern world we live.
Within the festival dancers, musicians, singers and scholars from Greece and abroad will take part. Besides, workshops will be held, as well as presentations, shows, lectures, bazaars and lots of other activities. Specifically, the participants will have the opportunity to attend the workshops of Classical Indian Dances(Bharata Natyam, Kathak), Bollywood dances (traditional and modern), dances from Rajasthan, North-west India (Khalbelia), Middle East Dances, Tribal Fusion, Greek Dances etc, from teachers of the artistic world.
Cultural clubs, dance groups and individual artists (singers, dancers etc) willing to participate in the Festival can address the organizers:
