On Saturday, April 28, 2012 at 8 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center’s Cohan Center, Cal Poly Arts presents “Bollywood Delicious” – a new flavor of cultural burlesque performed by the blue13 dance company, America’s premiere contemporary Indian dance ensemble, renowned worldwide for its authenticity, unparalleled artistry and colorful theatricality.

blue13’s Artistic Director, Achinta S. McDaniel, elaborates:

“Forget everything you’ve heard or seen about Bollywood.  ‘Bollywood Delicious’ is a risque, burlesque-induced, provocative Bollywood dance assault on the senses, screaming parody with satirical, tongue-in-cheek premieres and restaged audience favorites that turn Bollywood on its proverbial head.

“Our new show is a burlesque take on the typical Bollywood show, featuring satirical tongue-in-cheek premieres, re-staged audience favorites and brand new works.”

“Los Angeles-based blue13 dance company remains true to the origins of dance while maintaining a modern edge, pushing the envelope and challenging social norms.  They use a little bit of Bollywood, a little bit of on-stage ensemble, a little bit of on-stage ensemble, a little bit of Hollywood, and a whole lot of soul!” (Buzzine.com)
