Nritya: Collecting the Story of Indian Dance in the Black Country 1960-2000

By Jai Jashn Dance

Friday 1st February

6 - 8pm

Art Gallery, Lichfield Street, WV1 1DU

Free event

 

Join Jai Jashn Dance for the launch of Nritya, exploring the heritage of Indian dance in the Midlands.

 

Over the next year we will collect and document the largely unwritten and unrecorded story of Indian dance, focusing especially on the Black Country (1960-2000), for a festival weekend at Wolverhampton Art Gallery and Arena Theatre in 2020.

 

This project is supported by Heritage Lottery Funding with thanks to National Lottery players. Jai Jashn Dance is a non-profit community organisation under the umbrella of Jaivant Patel Dance.
