    Gul Bahaar: A Celebration of Uzbek, Indian, and Persian Dance” Gunston Theater One 2700 South Lang Street Arlington, VA The sumptuous beauty of the Moghul court will come alive at the Gunston Theater One in Arlington, VA on Saturday, June 16, at 7:30 PM. The performance, Gul Bahaar : A celebration of Uzbek, Indian and Persian dance” honors three distinct Eastern cultural traditions which interacted and influenced each other during the Moghul dynasty. Classical pieces and folkloric dances will be presented in lavish, colorful costumes by DC’s premiere Middle Eastern and Central Asian dance ensemble, the award- winning Silk Road Dance Company. People’s Artist of Uzbekistan Qizlarhon Dustmuhamedova and Indian guest artists Asha Vattakutti and Jayantee Payne will present North Indian selections. The Gul Bahaar concert will be the highlight of the 12th Annual Central Asian Dance Camp, “Babur’s Legacy: Exploring Uzbek-Indian Connections.” Persian, Uzbek and Indian dance legacies will be the focus of the classes scheduled to take place June 14 -17, at new Joe’s Movement Emporium facility in Mount Rainier, Maryland. Although Persian and Uzbek classical dance come from an Islamic culture and North Indian court dance springs from Hindu roots, these dance forms share some intriguing similarities dating in part to the Moghul dynasty. For Uzbeks, the 16th century emperor Babur is a much-admired hero and poet; for Indians, he is remembered as a cruel conqueror. But from either perspective, Babur is recognized as the founder of the Moghul dynasty that blended Central Asian Islamic culture with North Indian Hindu traditions. The cross pollination of these Central Asian and Indian traditions flowered in a court culture remarkable for music, dance, and poetry. (Babur’s work, the Baburnama, was translated into Persian and esteemed by Persians.) The West is familiar with the most famous example of Moghul architecture,the Taj Mahal. One vibrant result of this cross-cultural contact remains today in the classical dance genre known as Kathak which developed into its contemporary form at the Moghul courts.
