Nrityajog –a Bangladesh chapter of World Dance Alliance - Asia Pacific, will be organising Ocean Dance Festival of Bangladesh on November 22-26, 2019 in Cox's Bazar. Dancers from all over the world are going to participate in the festival. A prodigious festival such as this requires a lot of preparations, which have already begun.
Yesterday, the organisers held a discussion on Ocean Dance Festival of Bangladesh, where they explained the procedures of proposal submission, registration, the theme of the festival, etc. The discussion, moderated by dancers Arthy Ahmed and Maria Farih Upama, took place in Munmun's Kitchen.
The panelists included prominent and promising dancers, including the likes of Laila Hasan, Anisul Islam Hero, Lubna Marium, Tamanna Rahman, Tabassum Ahmed, Warda Rihab, Snata Shahrin, Rachel Priyanka Perris, Tahnun Ahmedy and Abu Nayeem. Contemporary dance performances will be featured at the event. The performances will include solo, duets and group endeavours, which need to be innovative.
World Dance Alliance utilises the art of dance to exchange ideas between different cultures and be more politically aware about the current world. Hence, contemporary dance form is chosen, through which dancers will have more scope to be creative and produce their own pieces. Even the music has to be authentic, composed by the performers themselves.
Along with dance performances, there will be scholarly paper presentation, panel discussion, workshops and other arrangements. The dancers, both international and national, and visitors will also have the opportunity to enjoy the performances in the longest sea beach in the world.
The deadline of submission for dancers, researchers and participants is February, 25, 2019. The details of the event will be found at the official website: www.oceandancefestival.com. The audience can also drop in their inquiries here at the website.
