Indian Fusion Immersion
Let's immerse with Bhumika Tribal Fest into the 6 hrs Indian Fusion Intensive with amazing Josefine Wandel.
This intensive consists of 3 workshops:
INDIAN FUSION TECHNIQUE
Friday | 15:30 ~ 17:30
As a student of classical Indian dance, Josefine's 'Indian Fusion' style is highly inspired by the aesthetics of Indian art. The philosophies of ancient Indian art are a strong background of her work. Through research and practice she fuses Indian aesthetics with the aesthetics of Tribal Fusion Dance.
In this workshop you will dive into beautiful Indian Fusion techniques. We will work on Josefine’s favourite Indian Fusion isolations, complex layerings, graceful poses, traveling and elegant arm movements.
INTRODUCTION TO KALBELIYA DANCE
Saturday | 10:00 ~ 12:00
Kalbelia is a dance originally performed by the Kalbelia community - the nomadic tribe of Rajasthan. Earlier, the Kalbelia men used to carry cobras in cane baskets and move from door to door. Their women however, used to accompany them while dancing, singing and earning a livelihood from their beautiful performances. The sensuous form of dancing mimics the movements of snakes in some ways.
Josefine will teach you the introduction to this energetic, elegant, flexuous and skillful art, which is one of the most cherished experiences of the desert state of Rajasthan.
Please bring a skirt and a notebook.
INDIAN FUSION MASALA
Sunday | 10:00 ~ 12:00
The presence of Josefine's Indian Fusion style is often described as strong, graceful and snakelike - as a serpent from the desert of India. In this workshop we will fuse Indian Fusion techniques and elements of the stunning, earthy, elegant dance form of Kalbelia into unique Indian Fusion combinations.
In this workshop you will be also introduced to creative aspects of fusing dances and you will also build your own combinations under Josefine’s guidance.
