Billingham International Folklore Festival of World Dance presents:

“Irish & Indian Dreams”

Featuring Balbir Singh Dance Company and Absolutely Legless Irish Dancers

Stories of Love, Loss and Hope – a cultural fusion of Irish dance and Classical North Indian Kathak

Fresh from performing at the Royal Heritage Days Festival in Sharjah, United Arab Emirates and appearing on Al Jazeera Television, Balbir Singh Dance Company and Absolutely Legless Irish Dancers bring you the new exciting fusion show “Irish and Indian Dreams”, creating a new kind of cultural conversation. The Irish hard and soft shoe traditions and Kathak dance have a surprising amount in common. Both feature strong rhythmic footwork, stories told through dance and song, and a lyrical graceful performance quality, complementing each other to keep the audience entertained.
