Experiencing the hard work and love for contemporary dance by Hrishikesh Pawar as well as seeing the impressive result in form of the festival, touched me deeply and i feel very grateful that i was allowed to be part of it.
A day later i started to teach a master class to the local dancers, who participated with great dedication, passion, joy and a good sense of humor. i had so much fun sharing my knowledge of different dance techniques, my experience as a performer and choreographer as well as creating a short movement phrase with the dancers - that in the end i felt we just didn't have enough time... so i hope to be back with the whole company next year!
here is a brief review of the workshop: Sakaal Times
