School of Oriental and African Studies – Indian Dance Society presents An East Wind
Matinee - Doors 1.30pm Show 2.00pm
Evening - Doors 7pm Show 7.30pm
An East Wind is a dance-theatre piece based entirely on Kazi Nazrul Islam’s poems and songs where his words transform into dialogues. It celebrates poetry’s deep kinship with the youth of today who on one hand mourn the loss of their innocence and on the other are unafraid to rebel. It highlights their revolutionary spirit and explores themes and conflicts that students bring to the stage through the dynamics of choreography.
School Of Oriental And African Studies – Indian Dance Society (SOAS IDS) is a student-led dance community that was established in 2013. IDS welcomes, introduces, and acquaints those who are keen with the folk, classical and martial dances of India. The IDS continues to create performances with non-dancers, present students and alumni under careful mentoring of professional performers in order to understand various styles and aesthetics that inform the field of Indian dance.
