Bicycle with Barefoot is a piece of unique and inspiring original Asian dance theatre presented by Annapurna Indian Dance to celebrate the historic occasion of Tour de France in Yorkshire.
Bicycle with Barefoot has been selected as part of Yorkshire Festival 2014 – the first ever 100 day art festival to precede the Grand Départ in its 111 year history.
It involves printing the design of a bicycle on a large 4 meter square canvas cloth which is secured on a frame and laid on a surface sprinkled with powdered paint. Spectators will be witnessing a wonderfully imaginative printing process where dancers will be moving carefully on the canvas using various pressures of their feet and will see the printed art work when the frame is held upside down. There will also be traditional Indian dancing performed by local community children.
The concept and inspiration for the project has been taken from the ancient Indian classical dance style called KUCHIPUDI dance from Andhra Pradesh in India.
Annapurna Indian Dance is delighted to announce that we will be presenting our original Asian dance Theatre Bicycle with Barefoot at four major festivals in Yorkshire as part of Yorkshire Festival 2014.
14th June Bradford Festival
