Gori KaDance Orchestra presents a sparkling dance and music show. Get carried away to the exotic continent of India, where dreams become reality and fantasies come to life!
AGNI is a spectacular show with elements of ancient and modern India. Experience this colourful mix of vivid bollywood songs, dazzling gypsy dances, enchanting melodies and impressive choreographies, and enjoy the Indian live music and songs. The artistic scenography and breathtaking costumes create the perfect setting for a Thousand and One Night fairy tale.
Through a variety of dance styles, AGNI tells the story of the many cultures that live in India. From classic to modern, from Tamil Nadu to Rajasthan. Maya Sapera interprets bollywood choreographies and classical temple dances in her own individual style based on the authentic dance forms, but always with great respect for the true nature of the Indian heritage.
AGNI is a creation by Maya Sapera Dance Company. Maya Sapera was the first in Belgium to perform and teach bollywood and Indian gypsy dance on a professional level. She is touring in Belgium as well as abroad to promote the Indian dance and music culture together with Gori Ka Dance Orchestra. They currently consist of six dancers and seven musicians.
