On Sunday 11 November, Jaivant Patel Dance and Midlands Arts Centre (MAC) present a beautiful evening of South Asian dance in celebration of Deepavali, more commonly known as Diwali. One of the most popular Indian festivals, Deepavali celebrates the victory of light over darkness and sees millions of lights shining on housetops, outside doors and windows, around temples and other buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed, bringing together friends and families to share in fellowship and prosperity.
The evening features some of the Midlands’ most exciting professional and community dance artists and groups. The uplifting family-friendly show includes performances by Chitraleka Dance Company, Bella And Beats, Jaimal Mistry Dancers and Gabhru Panjab De, and everyone is welcome. The show starts at the MAC in 6pm and costs £10 (£8 concessions) – visit macbirmingham.co.uk to find out more.
