Gurgaon, Nov 5 (UNI) A plethora of cultural events -- from art to dance, music to theatre -- are taking place here under one roof to promote the rich heritage of India.
Old World Hospitality, the organising body at the Indian Habitat Centre in the national capital, is presenting a gamut of cultural activities at the Epicentre.
These activities include painting exhibitions, dance and music shows, film screenings and theatre.
Moreover, the Epicentre is being promoted as Gurgaon's own ''Indian Habitat Centre''.
Currently, the footfall is quite less but the organisers are sure of it becoming as popular as the centre in New Delhi.
''We are sure that the footfall will increase with time. We thought of having a centre in Gurgaon as this is what we do. We promote Indian art and culture,'' Mr Sunil Rawat, Event Head told UNI.
There is no membership fee and most of the shows have free entry on first cum first serve basis. Only theatre is being charged for.
In art, painting exhibitions like Rhapsody, Antakaran - A Journey Within, Impressions 2008, Enchante and Panorama of Modern Indian Art are on display throughout this month. Several established and up-and-coming artists would present their works during the period.
Two foreign language films -- Japanese movie The Gift of Beate and French film The corridors of time: The visitors II -- are on the list of movies to be screened.
There would be Carnatic vocal recital by Master B Manohar, disciple of T V Manikandan and Hindustani vocal recital by Dr Rita Dev, disciple of Girija Devi and Ram Narayan Jha, disciple of Pandit Sarathi Chatterjee.
Plays like Pencil Se Brush Tak, Dara Shikoh and Dragon Lalten would also be performed.
