Sounds like a scene out of any perfect Hollywood movie, but that is exactly where some lucky kids are headed. A lucky break like the one provided by Aanukrati could go a long way to change their lives.
These street kids would unite with young contemporary dancers for Anurakti. An initiative that drives to surpass the socio-economic divide and create a mutual understanding between different strata’s through dance.
Anurakti is a team of young contemporary dance artists who would be seen tapping their feet with the brilliant self trained acrobatic talents from the street. Anurakti dabbles into various dance techniques featuring mayurbhanj chhau, lyrical jazz, Kathak and street acrobatics.
The idea behind it is to put the gymnastic talents of these street children at its best use in an attempt to change to course of their life through the guidance of a dance company.
What drives the Urshilla Dance Company team forward: It is rooted in a scene at the traffic red lights, something all of us witness and ignore- the spread out arms of little kids on the road. UDC aims to make these little hopeful arms stretch out not for alms but a heartfelt embrace.
With the thought of imparting a sense of pride and a sense of belief in them, UDC hand picked these young artists from the streets of Delhi and created a piece with their team of trained dancers.
Enthusing a sense of confidence, UDC would bring forth the talent of these kids through a piece that explores contemporary dance with new dimensions of lighting and multimedia.
It would take you through an emotional journey of two street kids with a twinkle in their eye to become famous dance artists and how a dance company makes turns their aspirations into reality.
The show has a mass appeal owing to its entertaining story telling; though it is abstract in its form. UDC is currently nurturing the talents of six street children who would all be performing in this show.
