Conveying a message through movements


Star 2010, an event held recently at the Ambedkar Bhavan,  saw people from all over the City turning up to watch young Bangaloreans in action. Organised by the Forgiven Generation Charitable Trust, the event had youngsters dazzling the audience with a variety of cultural programmes.

The hall had a good mix of young as well as old, all of them looking forward to watching the event.

The show started out with the rock performance by the band Refiner, which enthralled the audience with some Gospel rock numbers. Full of raw energy, the band members belted out enjoyable numbers like When I fly to the mountain, We three kings, Awake from the slumber.

The songs, which  had a distinct Christmas touch, were sung in rock style to keep everyone entertained.

The other songs sung by the band during the event were Walk with me and We all stand together, all of which gave out a message to the crowd present.

The rock show undoubtedly was the highlight of the event and was thoroughly enjoyed by the young.

“I know the members of the band and so I came here to see them perform. I think it was a very good performance,” said Cheryl, a student.

But there was more to come and the night got more and more entertaining. The rock show was followed by dance performances which left everyone breathless. The styles included contemporary, hip-hop, freestyle and jazz while the dancers were expressive as well as acrobatic.

 They moved flawlessly dramatising the various bad habits that the youth can get easily sucked into. These included addictions like gambling and drinking. The colourful costumes, make-up and dance moves drew applause from everyone present. The other programmes held during the event was a mime on character-building followed by a message on moral values. “The entire show was very well presented and it is great to see young people putting up such great performances,” said Srinivas V, who had come to watch the show. All in all, it was an evening full of music, dance and celebration of the youth.
