Silk Road Dance Company, cultural understanding through Beauty and Delight
Hooray for Bollywood
Hooray for Bollywood brings all the color and glitter of the Indian film industry to the stage. The concert length performance, presented by Silk Road Dance Company and guest artists, pays homage to the vibrant dance sequences so popular in Indian movies like the recent Academy Award winning film ''Slumdog Millionnaire.''
The program visits some of the subjects most common in Indian film choreographies, depicting a variety of human emotions and experiences -- from flirtatious and funny to poignant and touching, from spiritual and devotional, to joyous and uplifting. Richly costumed, the dances feature music from beloved films like LAGAAN, ASOKA, BOMBAY, BRIDE AND PREJUDICE and others.
Highlights include a Rajastani folk dance, a visit to a magical temple, a romantic boat ride, a candlelight ritual and -- of course --a wedding party.
