Kala Sangam is pleased to present Australia’s GOLD Company (Growing Old Gracefully) in an evening of dance and film. This is the beginning of a great international partnership with this groundbreaking community dance company of mature individuals who defy the preconception that dance is only for the young. They will perform a range of works that celebrate the power of ageing with a particular focus inspired by India. The GOLD tour to the UK is an example of their free, fun loving spirits – self funded with love and passion for the dance and communication.
The films screened this evening will have nostalgic look back in time to the music of the greats such as Nat King Cole, Cliff Richard, Elizabeth Cameron Dalman to celebrate the International Year of Light and cross-cultural dialogue. It will also explore the writings of Ahmed Kathrada who was in prison alongside Nelson Mandela for 26 years and the latest production from the Sydney based filmmaker Sue Healey showing the transformative power of dance.
