Goethe-Institut Bangladesh—in partnership with Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy—is organizing “An Evening of Contemporary Dance” on Thursday evening.

Gates to the event—at the National Theatre Hall of Bangladesh, Shilpakala Academy, Dhaka—will open at 4:45 pm. 

The event, under the “Young Choreographers’ Platform 2019,” will bring some of the outstanding choreographies of contemporary dance, presented last year during the Contemporary Dance Festival 2018, back to the stage.

The event will feature choreographers: Mehraj Haque Tushar, Parvin Sultana Kolly, Md. Ariful Islam Arnab, Moumita Roy Joya, Anandita Khan, Tahnun Ahmedy, Sudeshna Swayamprabha, Md. Farhad Ahmed, Bristi Bepari, Md. Eashin Arafat and Snata Shahrin. Tomas Bünger is the artistic director of the event while Fiaz Zahir is its technical director.

These eleven talented Bangladeshi choreographers, accompanied by other dancers, will bring performances on stage that they have developed over the last few months under the mentorship of Bünger and Zahir.

This event continues the Young Choreographers’ Platform project initiated by Goethe-Institut Bangladesh back in 2016, in cooperation with the Shilpakala Academy Bangladesh.

It aims to provide a stage for talented young Bangladeshi contemporary dance choreographers, and dancers, to transmit their thoughts of present-day Bangladesh through contemporary dance forms and styles.
