Devonshire Square is marking the UK-India Year of Culture with a sensorially engaging retrospective journey through Indian dancing styles, from contemporary Bollywood shows to some of the most ancient and symbolically charged Indian classical dances. The 7 week programme will showcase acts by some of the most talented dancers in the South Asian dance panorama presented by Akademi South Asian Dance, while the Bollywood themed opening show will be presented by Bollywood Co. The UK-India Year of Culture represents a perfect opportunity to celebrate Devonshire Square’s rich and charming history which is strongly linked to India. The 4 acre campus - today a premium office and retail destination as well as an artistic hub - used to be a complex of warehouses back in 1820 where the most valuable goods traded by the East India Company used to be stored. The dancers’ strikingly colourful and elaborated costumes will bring to life India’s precious textiles once stored in the Bengal Warehouse, evoked also by the festival’s title “Tales of Silk and Music”, creating a powerful metaphorical link between Devonshire Square past, as a warehouse, and present, as a culturally vibrant destination. All shows will take place on Thursdays at 12.30pm in Devonshire Square’s historical Western Courtyard from 6th July till 17th August. All performances are free attendance and registration is not required.
