Performed on 14 and 15 April, Bollywood Fusion, part of India by the Nile festival, was a collaboration between artists from Egypt and India
For two evenings on 14-15 April, the Cairo Opera House saw Bollywood Fusion, a music and dance show the like of which had never been seen before. The event was part of the India by the Nile festival, a dynamic and first-of-its-kind, month-long programme (13 April-13 May) offering Egyptians the widest variety of Indian artistic events from concerts, calligraphy and crafts exhibitions to film screenings and literary seminars.
The festival aims to bring the gems of Indian culture closer to viewers and provide a platform for artistic cooperation and exchange between the two countries. To this end the organisers, the Embassy of India and the India Council for Cultural Relations (ICCR), working with the Team Work Productions India, have incorporated Egyptian artists and intellectuals into a number of activities.
