Dona Ganguly is all set for another prestigious dance show. She and her team are rehearsing well for Cultural Evenings at the newly created cultural spaces. This is an initiative by CEO, Museums and Cultural Spaces, Ministry of Culture, Government of India. “Ours is a pure classical dance recital. But since it’s a Government of India initiative, we have Vande Mataram and Des Rangeela as part of the Odissi dance form. We have used the entire heritage property space of the National Library to perform. The stairs and arch bases have dancers posited in between them,” said Dona. The danseuse is happy to be performing at such a show. Since heritage buildings form gorgeous backdrops for Indian classical dances, Dona finds this to be a great opportunity. “We have earlier done a similar utilising-the-entire-space show at the Indian Museum too. Our dance matches and blends well with such backdrops,” she said.
The show will be on from January 7 to January 10. There are Soumyajit and Sourendra’s music melodic structure, Bangla folk band Dohar’s performance and more shows on classical instruments.
