"Natyaloka presents RANG – Colours. With RANG, internationally acclaimed artists Nirupama & Rajendra are collaborating with local artist Swaroopa in bringing the dance form Kathak to a Dunedin audience for the first time ever! RANG is a unique dance performance featuring Kathak, the North Indian Classical Dance, in a refreshing & pulsating manner. RANG gives you a glimpse of a rich Indian culture: the festivals, art & philosophy presented with high energy, enthusiasm & innovation. The perfectly orchestrated Indian music has been specially created for the production. This is the NZ premiere straight after their performance at Adelaide Fringe. Nirupama & Rajendra are noted Indian Classical Dancers in Bharathanatyam and Kathak dance forms and they are from Bengaluru, India. They are actively involved as dancers, choreographers, teachers & producers for over 25 years. Nirupama & Rajendra’s performances are based on Indian classical dance tradition perfected over years of learning in music, literature and culture. They derive their movement vocabulary and inspiration from 5000-year-old scriptures such as Natyashastra and creatively use the state of the art to provide a wholesome experience. Nirupama & Rajendra’s performances have attracted audiences totalling over five million across five continents and have gained appreciation from people from all walks of life. Gold coin entry for children. RANG is supported by Asia New Zealand Foundation Catch a short lunchtime preview in the Dunedin Public Art Gallery foyer: 17 March at 12.30pm. "They have a very infectious passion for Art" - A.R. Rahman - music composer and Oscar Winner
