Cie Artonik – “Colour of Time”
In a rainbow eruption of powder and dance, “The Colour of Time” brings a stunning reinvention of the traditional Holi festival celebrated in India. Each year, people throw gulal powder in the air showing great joy and mirth, celebrating unity, acceptance of diversity through these colourful embraces, as these Free Hugs offered to strangers. While its origins draw from Indian culture, this reinterpretation is resolutely contemporary and very far from Bollywood. In a massive dance-theatre parade, dancers and musicians move in a choreographed parade towards a huge finale. Joining in, the audience are invited into a riotous explosion of colour and joy, painting the sky with Gulal (coloured corn flour).
Location: Procession ending at Cathedral Green
