Kalanidhi Dance was one of twelve dance companies that participated in the seven-day dance festival. Drive East showcased six of India’s classical dance forms – Bharata Natyam, Odissi, Kathak, Kuchipudi, Mohiniattam and Kathakali.


“The 12 dance performances, by as many different artists, will highlight the diversity of India’s classical dance forms, which share a common base but over the course of 2,000 years have evolved and acquired distinct characteristics.”
