Something special is set to take place on the Gold Coast this weekend friends and it’s not too late to ensure you’re there to witness the magic.
Meera, will take the stage at HOTA on November 4th and, as the very first production of local lass Aarti Bajaj and her boundary-pushing production company Wild Dreamer Productions, it’s sure to be absolutely epic.
Meera is a bold love story from 16th century Northern India about a royal Princess who believes in her love for Krishna (a Hindu God) to such a degree that she is willing to go against the norms of society for her love. But don’t go thinking it’s your regular Bollywood production.
It’s a story of love, passion, betrayal and every emotion of human experience that can make or break a person. So something we can all relate too, as you’ll quickly find out.
The story won’t focus on any religious aspects though, with the view of deliberately making it more appealing to a wider audience. Us, the lucky people of the Gold Coast.
Aarti Bajaj has made it her personal mission to show audiences there’s more to Indian performing arts than Bollywood.
With a degree in dance herself, Bajaj is also the star of the show and with eight unique types of dance including Indian classical, Indian contemporary, tap, jazz, ballet, African contemporary, pole and aerial, it’s certain to be a production the likes of which the Gold Coast has never seen.
Her goal is to cut through boundaries, using globalisation and modernisation, shining a light on different cultures and art forms and we are 100% here for that.
With costumes made in India, music curated between four renowned international composers and dance choreographed by the Aarti Bajaj herself, Meera will be a performance not to be missed.
Boasting a 300-strong cast and crew, all of whom are Gold Coast and Brisbane locals, the new stage spectacular is a one night only affair so make sure you don’t miss out.
Hooray for Gold Coast locals bringing the goods.
LOCATION: HOTA, 135 Bundall Rd, Bundall
WHEN: Sunday November 4th at 5pm
