The Panghat troupe is from Ahmedabad in Gujarat, a state in northwest India. The region is well known for its wide variety of folk dances – some of which said to have been passed on by Krishna himself. Whether it is to honour the gods, for weddings or funerals, every ritual, celebration or tribal dance has its own costume, its typical folk music and traditions. The Panghat troupe will present 11 of these dances, choreographed by Dave Chaitanya, a master of sacred and traditional dances. Above all fun and dynamic, this representation will transport the audience into the heart of the Gujarat’s authentic traditions. For this first performance in Belgium, the troupe will also present a new type of music associated with temple music. This will be a festive occasion: an effervescence of dance moves, colours and grace which will dazzle the audience.
