This session will be the first step towards building a connection between both countries and will pave the way for future collaborations between artists in India and Northern Ireland. As countries with a rich history, both Northern Ireland and India have a lot to share with each other, and a lot to learn from each other. The hope is that something beautiful can come out of this connection.

Our colleagues at Ranga Shankara invite all the theatre-makers, dancers and artists of India to come and be part of this wonderful session and contribute to the interactive session.
