Sacred Fires: Dashehra Diwali Mela finale in Albert Square
We're delighted to have worked with, once again, the Indian Association who brought their Saturday afternoon Mela celebrations to a close with a finale spectacle in Manchester's Albert Square during the evenings show.
This family-focused celebration was inevitably colourful, vibrant and noisy with a range of events and activities that took place throughout the afternoon and early evening.
Our role focused on the end of evening finale, which featured fireworks, and a lantern parade that made its way from the entrance of Manchester Central Library to Albert Square.
Sacred Fires is a collaboration between Kadam Dance and Walk the Plank presenting the Odissi Ensemble for Manchester Diwali Dashera Mela.
Produced by Walk the Plank.
Commissioned by Indian Association Manchester and supported by Arts Council England.
