A performance of the Russian youth dance group “Orchid” was hosted by the Russian Centre of Science (RCSC) and Culture in the national Capital recently. The performances by professional Russian artists in India were dedicated to the upcoming BRICS Summit in Goa. The event was jointly organised by the RCSC and the Indo-Russian Chamber of Commerce and Industries (Tamil Nadu).
The sundry dance performance by the group was brilliantly choreographed by Elena Nikolaevna Plyukhin. It included cheerful traditional Russian dances, classical ballet, belly dance and some modern pop improvisation. The group also performed on the song “Paradise” by the British alternative rock band Coldplay. The extraordinary movements and expressions of the artists were worth watching. Artists, donned in dazzling costumes, performing in harmony with the lively rhythm and music, left a remarkable impact on the audience. The concert concluded with a performance named “Dasvidaniya”, meaning “until we meet again”.
The Russian dance studio “Orchid” was established in September 1999 in the city of Rostov-on-Don. Artists of this group have taken part in many Russian and International dance festivals and competitions. The group has won various competitions, including “Morning Star”, the Champions of Russia on dance shows etc.
Their repertoire includes classic Russian folk dances and the famous ballet composition, as well as contemporary dance styles like jazz, modern and others. The motto of this dance group is: ‘It’s so cool to be the best!’
Though the group has already performed several times in India, the artists performing this year are here for the first time. The tour of studio last year in Southern India was a huge success. This Russian youth dance group’s next performance is at Manav Rachna International University, Faridabad. Concerts of the “Orchid” will be also held at the RCSC in Chennai, as well as in Coimbatore, Madurai, Bangalore and Hyderabad.
The 2016 BRICS summit, which is scheduled for October 15-16 in Panaji, Goa, will be the eighth annual BRICS summit. It is an international relations conference attended by the heads of state or heads of government of the five member states Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
