A Performer’s Collective of Young People in Delhi, The Yellow Brick Project is making different genres of dance accessible to wider audiences of varying age-levels in Delhi. After the success of their first performance ‘Razzle Dazzle’ at Kamani Auditorium in 2009, they will be staging ‘Dear Delhi’ on the 27th and 28th of July 2010 at the Kamani Auditorium at 7 PM.

The Yellow Brick Project is a Youth Initiative by Prerna Kapur and Nitya Vaishnavi Singh, graduates from Lady Sri Ram College. The team for ‘Dear Delhi’ consists of about 70 people (aged 15-25 years), mostly students from within Delhi University and students from foreign universities who are home on vacation. The entire event is being executed by this young team, from choreography, dance, sets, costumes to event management and photography. This project focuses on interweaving different dance and musical styles including Jazz, Hip-Hop, Lyrical, Ballroom, Indian and Contemporary style dance. Film, audio-visual production and elaborate stage set-up add to the glamour of the performances by this group.

‘Dear Delhi’ has something for every audience in it as it moves through the familiar and much-loved sounds and sights of Delhi. “Dear Delhi’ narrates the experiences of its people-students, homosexual couples, tourists, single women, college professors, people from other states working in Delhi . Touching the lives of everyone who has experienced love in some form or the other, this performance hopes to remind everyone of the beauty of love, in Delhi.

This performance is being mentored by Atul Jindal and Karan Kumar from The Big Dance Academy and Clarence Gonsalves, bassist for the popular band- Them clones will be providing the music. The Radio Partners for this event are HIT 95 FM. For more details on the performance, email at [email protected] or visit the Facebook group- The Yellow Brick Project.
