BWITCHS, the first International Bellydance Fusion Festival is all set to groove the city with never seen before fusion dance forms on 6th,7th & 8th of March 2015 at HIVE, Bandra. The event is conceptualized and curated by Leena Vie,a Mumbai based passionate bellydance fusion dancer who has extensively trained & travelled across different countries learning & showcasing her work.
The festival slated for a Woman’s day weekend, has a pro-feminist theme aimed at channelling the collective voice of women in this profession to raise awareness and correct perceptions. The event propagates the idea of marrying Arts & Activism againsta a backdrop of conversations around feminism,trust and power dynamics. The Indian society is still closed & patriarchal. Women don’t feel safe in such environment and therefore cants blossom to the fullest. Dancing allows us to come back into our bodies as individuals and groups and a world, it connects our feet to the earth and inspires us to move to her rythms.
BWITCHS will present International and local artists from France, Portugal, Russia, Spain etc in collaboration with Indian dancers from Bangalore, Pune, Delhi & Mumbai. Riotiously colourful & entertaining performances on never seen before fusions such as Burlesque Belly fusion,Hula Hoop Belly Fusion, Thi Odissu Belly Fusion, Kathak Belly Fusion etc will be a visual delight to the audience. The 3 day extravaganza would witness various innovative workshops for pregnant women, bellydance for men & corporate women, flashmobs, competitions, Hafla nights etc.
