Terence Lewis' group to perform at Vienna dance fest
New Delhi: Bollywood choreographer Terence Lewis` dance company has been invited to perform at the opening ceremony of the Impulstanz Dance Festival in Vienna. He says it is a privilege to showcase the Hindi film industry on an international platform.
Impulstanz Dance Festival, one of the largest dance festivals in the world, has been held every July for the 28 years. Choreographers and teachers from across the world teach and perform various dance forms.
Members of the Terence Lewis Contemporary Dance Company (TLCDC) will leave on July 9 for Vienna and their show is scheduled for July 14.
"The TLCDC will stage its production `Jhoom` on July 14. It is a 30 minute extravaganza, bringing to the stage the very essence of India, wrapped in the colours and sounds of Bollywood. `Jhoom` is the perfect ground where Indian culture and tradition meet the new age glitz and gloss of mainstream Bollywood," Lewis, the artistic director of TLCDC, told reporters.
"It is an absolute privilege to showcase Bollywood on an international platform. The production is an interesting colourful potpourri of folk, the classical form and the current day kitsch. `Jhoom` is an ode to this Bollywood fantasy," added the 36-year-old, who choreographed for films like `Shikhar` and `Naach`.
