Manipuri Pung Cholam drummer dancers perform in Stockholm
April 25, 2014 - 19:00
On Friday 25 April 2014 Astad Deboo (photo), among India’s best contemporary dancers, performs along with the Manipuri Pung Cholam drummer dancers at Moderna Museet in Stockholm. They appear for the first time in Scandinavia, with their combination of Manipuri martial arts tradition and rhythm with classical Indian dance movements, adding a modern sensibility which makes this a truly unmissable performance. It is part of the India Unlimited cutural festival.
Venue: Moderna Museet, Exercisplan, Stockholm.
Three days later, on 28 April 2014, at 19.00, Astad Deboo has a solo performance at Dansens hus, Barnhusgatan 12-14, Stockholm. Deboo is a celebrated and honoured choreographer dancer being bestowed the Padma Shri and the Sangeet Natak Akademi award by the Government of India. In this sixty minute performance, he weaves together a tapestry of dance, often described as poetry in movement. Having been trained in the Indian Classical Dance styles of Kathak and Kathakali, and studied dance overseas, Astad has developed a uniquely distinctive style which is minimal and lyrical in nature.
