About

THE PLATFORM, as the name suggests, showcases works of young dancers from across the country. 12 artistes will share their work every Saturday and Sunday evening of September 2019. Performances will span a variety of dance forms – contemporary, folk and classical – to give audiences a truly holistic experience of Indian dance.


The performances are preceded by panel discussions by and conversations with senior artistes on wide-ranging topics and workshops by some of the performers, aimed at art connoisseurs and patrons, aspiring students and lovers of dance in the city and region.


The aim of this festival is to bring all the dancers of the city – students, emerging professionals and senior artists – under one roof, to organise the dance sector, showcase excellence in Indian dance to a large audience, educate audiences and raise awareness of various dance forms, and build a community for the arts. And to give a stage to rising talent, seeding and nurturing the future of our arts ecosystem.
