NAVA GATI  contemporary Indian dance festival presents innovative and cutting edge dance and dance for screen by international and Sweden based choreographers all relating to Indian classical dance in a contemporary context.

Online program on 1st Oct at 19:00/7 pm CET

We have invited choreographers from India, UK, Sweden, U.S.A and France who challenge traditional norms, narratives and aesthetics in dance forms originally loaded with tradition and a highly codified movement language. These choreographers and film makers put their personal touch and new perspectives on global Indian dance today.

NAVA GATI is arranged and curated by Farhang förening/Movement in Exile and provides both online and on-stage live experiences. The festival also provides Webinars and Artist talks for the sharing of creative processes and to have a vital dialogue on Indian dance today. We are delighted to invite you all to share this unique event with us.

Welcome to NAVA GATI contemporary Indian dance festival 2021!
