Navdhara India Dance Theatre / Ashley Lobo (CANCELLED)
A Passage to Bollywood
In December, get out your colours and your glitter and prepare yourself for the big show! The Jean Vilar room will totally vibrate to the sound of Bollywood.
Bollywood in Chaillot! This is the promise of this successful show that has enchanted the international stage for five seasons. Put into movement by choreographer Ashley Lobo, A Passage to Bollywood accomplishes the wild challenge of mixing classical Indian dancing and the energy of today’s choreographies.
The story follows the outline of a Cinemascope production, the tale of a young boy leaving his village and discovering Bombay, the mirage city. From encounters to romance, this choreographic extravaganza gives a foretaste of the journey: exuberance of dance and rhythm, inventiveness of gestures and quite a surprising epilogue as a bonus. Navdhara India Dance Theatre is one of the rare professional companies in India. With A Passage to Bollywood, it rises to the top of entertainment summits. Philippe Noisette
