From the Temples of India to the Mountains of Scotland
The Moscow International Performing Arts Center. The dancing kaleidoscope "From
the Temples of India to the Mountains of Scotland" June 17, 2009
Four dance studios have gathered together to demonstrate a vivid kaleidoscope of
national dances from India, Scotland and Ireland.
We have bound together so different dance traditions to reflect a fantastical
interweaving of cultures in the modern world.
Every dance has its national character and colour. Every dance contains a
centuries-old wisdom of its people. They are so different but are united by a
powerful charge of positive energy, sparkling joy and inexhaustible creative
Dancers from the studio of Indian dance "Ananda Tandava" perform traditional
temple dances of India (Kuchipudi style). This ancient tradition combines dance
with the art of actor. Every movement bears a message and the dancer expresses
its meaning with all of his body.
The studio of Scottish dance "Shady Glen" performs classic Scottish national
dances in all the variety of forms and styles: from fiery reels to modern
examples of Scottish art of dance.
Maria Singal’s and "IRIDAN" studios of Irish dance will perform the world known
Irish step and graceful soft dances.
The zest of the concert will be in joint productions that combine Indian,
Scottish and Irish dances!
