When Astad Deboo made a fort dance!
The celebrated contemporary dancer’s performance was part of the One World Retreat, a three-day event to promote the cause of the Indian Head Injury Foundation.
Astad Deboo, the celebrated contemporary dancer and choreographer, took the audience’s breath away when he twirled on the parapet of the historic Mehrangarh Fort in Jodhpur during a fundraiser for the Indian Head Injury Foundation last week.
“The event was to raise funds for the head injury foundation and here I was doing some dance moves on a narrow parapet 30 feet high,” laughs Deboo, the pioneer of modern dance in India, who is not new to dancing on heights.
To the relief of the audience, he subsequently glided down the parapet and continued with his performance on the terrace of the beautifully lit fort.
