EAST MEETS WEST (article first published : 2007-04-11)

East Meets West is the title of new cultural crossover Fashion Show to be held at the Imbizo Conference Centre at the Sibaya Casino and Entertainment World on April 30 (premier night) and May 1 (afternoon and evening show).

The concept involves merging fashion with dance to create a vibrant multi-sensory experience. The organizers have been successful in sourcing designers to showcase their work, now they are looking for dancers to complement the designs.

“East Meets West is dedicated to sharing the rich and diverse culture of Bollywood with a South African audience that is truly as esoteric as the art itself,” says co-organiser Bhavnesh Narotam. “It is committed to creating a professional platform for local artists of stature by exposing young dancers, actors, singers and models to achieve their dreams even as they aspire to attain international stardom.”

The project is headed by two emerging energetic young professionals: choreographer Shivani Kara and dancer/performer Bhavnesh Narotam. Both have worked on various shows and want to now add some extra creativity and magic by staging a fashion fusion show with a difference.

There will be three shows: April 30 will be the Premiere Night, followed by afternoon and evening shows on May 1. The venue is the Imbizo Conference Centre, Sibaya Casino, Durban.

The premiere night will be an evening of elegance, glitz and glamour – an opportunity to dress up like a Bollywood – or Hollywood – superstar; an evening to pull out those feather boas and dramatic bling; to mingle with celebrities and enjoy a fabulous evening. The tables, which seat ten people, provide the perfect opportunity to host clients, colleagues, corporates, families and friends. A sumptuous four-course meal will complement the eclectic fashions on display.

While diners enjoy their meal, they will be entertained by sumptuous fashion from a selection of fashion houses – both from in and around KZN as well as national designers. Interspersed with the fashion will be a fabulous troupe of cross-cultural dancers performing items in an eclectic mix of Bollywood and contemporary fusion.

Buy a table and be part of the premiere night. For more information, contact Shivani Kara on 083 776 9222 or shivanikara@webmail.co.za or Bhavnesh Narotam on 072 349 6165 or bhavzn@gmail.com
