Come November 29, techies will get a platform to showcase their dancing talents. Natana, the Technopark-based cultural forum, is organising ‘Jalwa’, a cultural fete for techies.

 A dance competition exclusively for employees of Technopark companies will be held as part of ‘Jalwa’. The participants can shake a leg in contemporary or cinematic style. ‘Jalwa’ is organised with the support of Doordarshan, Thiruvananthapuram. The programme is expected to be telecast on DD by December.

 According to office-bearers of Natana, 10-15 companies have already registered for the competition. “Friday is the last date for registration. We are expecting more participants. Entries are limited. So, we are planning to conduct an audition to shortlist the teams,” said Eustine Thomas, one of the organisers of Natana.

 Eustine said the programmes are a show of team spirit and most teams undergo training under professional choreographers for the event.

 While dance competition is the main event, ‘Jalwa’ will also feature a dance programme, fashion show and performance of the music band of Natana team, Eustine said. The function will be held at Amphitheatre, Technopark.

 Natana has organised several cultural events in the past such as Kathakali nite, workshops on Koodiyattam, films and photography. It recently launched a film club titled ‘Nakshatra.’

 Founded GTech, Natana aims to bring together professionals from the Technopark community who are keen to pursue interests in culture, music, films, dance and other forms of traditional arts.
