This year the Big Union will premiere “Shakti” a dance performance created by Movema’s community performers and North West Indian dance artists which will celebrate feminine energy in a dynamic and beautiful performance featuring over 20 dancers and live Indian Dhol drummers!
Organiser, Ithalia Forel says:
“Big Union celebrates being human by bringing together all different parts of the Liverpool community to meet, eat, dance and have fun! People keep telling us this is what we need in these hard times post COVID and other difficult events and this is what Movema do best!”
Director of Shakti, Senior Associate Artist – Sheetal Maru says;
“It’s been inspirational to see how our participants have choreographed and responded to the theme of Shakti, which means feminine energy in Sanskrit. They’ve all brought something of themselves to the project, it’s our way of celebrating the Queen Jubilee’s celebrations in an inclusive and empowering way reflecting the diversity of Britain.”
Alok Nyak from Milap adds;
“Milap are delighted to be part of such an exciting project, making Indian dance and culture accessible to all. We see the new generation of Indian dance artists and teachers who we will continue to support with Movema, as part of our commitment to developing Indian dance and artists in Liverpool and the North West.”
