MEERA The Production suprirsed crowds with a flash mob in Surfers Paradise on Friday 31 August bringing free cultural arts performance to the Gold Coast community. With the lead of the artistic director and star of forthcoming stage spectacular MEERA Aarti Bajaj, local dancers gathered to showcase many dance forms including Indian classical, Indian contemporary, tap, jazz, ballet, African contemporary, and pole with a difference.

Aarti said the event was a huge success and the audience were treated to original music snippets from the production which will be interlaced with the most popular songs. “Friday’s flash mob was a small glimpse of what audiences could expect from MEERA,” said Aarti. “It showcased the beautiful laced diversity, different dance forms and spectacular costumes. It was a total feast for the eyes!”

A flash mob is a pre-choreographed dance or movement that is performed as a large group in a predetermined public space. The five minute routine began with a single dancer and appeared to spread among the crowd, creating a giant, spontaneous public spectacle of unified musical expression, then suddenly dispersing as if nothing happened.

MEERA The Production will be playing one-night-only at HOTA on Sunday 4 November, telling the bold love story from 16th Century Northern India about a royal Princess who believes in her love for Krishna to such a degree that she is willing to go against the norms of society for her love. This is a story of love, passion, betrayal and every emotion of human experience to make or break a person. MEERA is an interlude between a theatrical and musical, linked with the best of narration, opera singing and story-telling. It will be a mesmerising treat to all senses, melodious original music composed by renowned maestros from India, and many other European countries to lavish glamorous costumes that befit Indian-royalty, the backdrop of the story.
