The 9th Cracovia Danza Festival of Court Dance will be held in Cracow Aug. 2-10, comprising dance performances and workshops, in addition to shows, concerts, lectures, a ball for the festival audience, and an exhibition devoted to Indian ballet themes.

As a reference to the Year of India in Poland, the leading theme of this year's festival is court dances from India. Through performances of the Kathak court dance and other events, the organizers will take the festival audiences on a trip to the colorful world of Indian maharajas. The festival also creates an opportunity to identify Indian flavors in European court dances.

The Decjusza Villa in Cracow will host dance workshops conduced by top dance experts from around the world, including Sanjib Bhattacharya, an acclaimed Manipuri dancer. Visitors to the festival exhibition entitled Indian Themes in European Ballets will get to see genuine Indian outfits and masks as well as European ballet costumes with Indian touches.

The festival will include the premiere of a joint project entitled Poland-India Conversations in which Sanjib Bhattacharya, Maria Pomianowska & Ensemble, and the Cracovia Danza Court Ballet will engage in an artistic dialogue relying on gestures and emotions. Poland-India Conversations will take place Aug. 8 at 8 p.m. at the Arcaded Courtyard of the Royal Castle on Cracow's Wawel Hill.

Shows held on other evenings at Wawel include Jalsaa, performed by Vaswati Misra with the Dhwani Kathak Dance Ensemble (Aug. 9, 9 p.m.), and Szachy, based on a poem by Jan Kochanowski and performed by the Cracovia Danza Court Ballet (Aug. 10, 8 p.m.).
