The annual Indian societies' showcase - "East Meets West" was held at the Barbican on Friday night. The show is a variety song and dance affair which caters the best of both the east and west.
With around 200 participants and many more support crew including the ICU's very own DramSoc at hand, the event was certainly a great success. The efforts of the Indian Society were quite evident: with various dance routines and a central comic sketch parodying the "Lord Of The Ring" with certain "Goodness Gracious Me" characters providing some easy laughs.
The show is run annually and has become the flagship for one of Imperial College's largest societies. The show involved performances by other societies as well, including performances by "Funkology", the group renowned for its street-style dancing. Alongside more traditional dance and music ranging from Kathak dancing to Bhangra, the show also showcased the popular Bollywood tunes which certainly held the audience in awe.
Other notable parts were played by upcoming Urban music artiste Nathan as well as a couple of acoustic sessions with some very talented Imperial students. A fashion show with lots of glimmer coupled with what can certainly be classed as very energetic dancing routines made for an enjoyable evening.
The "East meets West" show was certainly impressive, purely on its grand scale, and the efforts made were clearly visible with what was a very professional show.
