KERA reported that Dallas Indian Arts Collective (DIAC) has opened a new performance venue in Oak Lawn called Center Stage. The new venue opens into a gallery space which then leads to a stage and room that can seat up to 300 guests.
Center Stage opens on August 19 with a performance of Kathak!, a traditional Indian dance journey of 10 artists from Luchnow, Delhi and Calcutta, and a fine art exhibit by Dallas artist Lekha Singh.
KERA reports that the DIAC founders, Anu Agarwal and Jitin Hingorani, formed the collective to showcase and preserve Indian culture for South Asians as well as introduce it to a larger audience.
They hope that other artists and art groups from around North Texas will utilize the space when it is not being used for DIAC programs.
