Description

Come and learn a simple, fun Bollywood dance routine to take part in The Great British Baarat, flashmob style!

This informal and friendly workshop will be lead by Movema practitioners and is suitable for all ages and abilities just wear loose, comfortable clothing and bring some water and yourself!

Milapfest and Movema come together on LightNight 2019 for a joyous celebration of the ritual of Indian marriage. Watch Movema, local dancers and Bombay Baja Brass Band join forces to create the traditional and colourful Indian “Baarat”, an exuberant wedding Ritual on Church Street. Come and join the Liverpool and wider communities coming together for an exciting fusion of East and West!

A traditional “Baarat” culminates in a “Milni”, the meeting of two families. In a unique take on this spectacular ritual, two of Liverpool’s cultural organisations will meet in the heart of the city to combine what they do best. Different community groups will join the Bombay Baja Brass Band for a street dance to celebrate India’s larger than life festive rituals.

Milapfest are the UK’s leading Indian arts development trust and have been based in Liverpool for over 35 years. Their mission is to Unite Hearts Through Arts by providing audiences, aspiring artists, and teachers with memorable and inspirational experiences of Indian arts through a dynamic programme of events.
