Two sessions of Indian Cultural Dance Performances were held at the Universitas Islam Negeri Sunan Kalijaga in the evening of 17 December and at the Societet Building (Gedung Societet Taman Budaya) on 18 December evening in Yogyakarta.
A specially flown in dance troupe from India “Sapphire Dance Creations” gave an electric performance of modern India dance. The troupe was sponsored by the Indian Council of Cultural Relations (ICCR) and both the performances were attended by more than 400 local residents of Yogyakarta at each of the venues.
Both the performances were organized by Embassy of India as part of the India Culture Week in Yogyakarta from 17-23 December 2018. The India Culture Week (ICW) showcased different facets of Indian tourism, arts, culture, music, dance, food, Yoga and Bollywood films spread over an entire week. It is expected that the week-long events planned under the India Culture Week would facilitate a better understanding and appreciation of India in the hearts and minds of Yogyakarta residents. The Embassy of India is deeply appreciative of the support and facilitation provided by leadership of Provincial Government of Yogyakarta Special Region and UIN Sunan Kalijaga in organizing the India Culture Week Celebrations.
