Aaja Nachle, Auckland's premier Indian dance school, presents the premiere film screening of Fierce Fairytales. This Bharatanatyam Classical Dance Troupe depicts modern twists on traditional fairytales, where damsels in distress are reframed as heroines: strong, powerful and intelligent.
Enjoy being enveloped in our version of a fairy tale, and soak in the innovative music, classical and contemporary choreography and colourful costume. Fierce Fairytales showcases Classical Indian Dance while telling universally relatable stories and empowering us all to recognise our inner strength and value.
Performances based on ‘Two Misunderstood Stepsisters’, ‘An Older Wiser Little Mermaid Speaks’, ‘Of Kings And Queens’ © Nikita Gill, poems from Fierce Fairytales: & Other Stories to Stir Your Soul (2018)
