Udaipur, a most beautiful city in Rajastan, has so much to offer; after my Indian cooking class, which I had already written a post about, I rushed over to the Haveli Museum, where every evening takes place a performance of Indian dance in the atrium of this old museum.
It’s atmosphere is quite mystic
The audience was mainly Indian guests, some tourists as well
Very skillful women swirling around in their most colorful costumes, performing their dances with knifes, chimes or pots of burning flames on their head showing their most acrobatic talents.
dancing within all their grace and beauty
these are the background musicians
and here is the host speaker, telling stories
some amazing, handsome male dancers performing a cultural story, quite dramatic
A puppetry performance telling a story accompanied by lots of laughter of the Indian audience.
The highlight of all, a woman dancing with pots on her head, adding many more and finishing with carrying 10 beautifully decorated pots.
even stepping on a metal plate
A beautiful show enjoyed by all
Leaving the beautiful rugs we were sitting on
