INDIAN DANCE FESTIVAL: NOURISH OUR ROOTS
Indian Dance Educators Association (IDEA)
With a theme of Collaborations and Communities, IDEA’s bi-annual festival is an Arlington tradition: a platform
for local artists to create and showcase new and innovative works of
art. The partnerships feature artists who are both local and international. One
choreographer is collaborating with William Shakespeare across the
centuries to present Romeo & Juliet through the lens of Kuchipudi
dance. A Kathak artist is collaborating with the Arlington-based Nomad
Dancers to show the common roots of Kathak and dances from the Central
Asian region. Two others are collaborating with a local Flamenco dancer
to compare and contrast these divergent styles. The festival promises to
be a feast of original and exciting programming.
