19. Sundara Light Dances 

Cultural Conversations, Nelson Whakatū

Take a moment during the festival to step into a cosy space decorated with saris and lights. Enjoy the illuminated movement of dancing textiles and South Asian dance.

Each dance sequence goes for 5 minutes.
The dances will be performed four times between 6pm and 7pm, each evening.
This will be a first-come-first-served event (because it's inside).
