This spring, Natya STEM Dance Kampni of Bangalore will visit Brecon, Swansea, Cardiff, Pontypridd and Wrexham as part of an artistic exchange with National Dance Company Wales (NDCWales).
On the tour, Natya STEM will present Vajra (which means “diamond”), a multimedia production that uses the Indian classical style kathak, martial arts and contemporary dance. In Sanjog, six dancers show off the virtuosity of the kathak style.
The relationship between Natya STEM and NDCWales began in August 2010 through a British Council grant. In December 2011, NDCWales was hosted by Natya STEM in India, performing in three Indian cities and taking part in local workshops and other events.
“Our ongoing relationship with Natya STEM Dance Kampni provides a fascinating insight into dance cultures from other countries. This tour gives Welsh audiences the chance to see this beautiful and compelling performance,” said artistic associate and NDCWales founder Roy Campbell-Moore.
