Indophiles get excited! Confluence Festival of Indian Arts in Australia comes to Mandurah for two days in November, bringing a rich tapestry of Indian arts, Bollywood film and dance, yoga, guided meditation and much more.

At the heart of Confluence is the Words on Water program, an international gathering of acclaimed writers, thinkers, and change makers coming together on one stage to engage in thoughtful debate and dialogue. This unique celebration of literature, arts and culture is brought to Australia by Teamwork Arts India, producers of the global literary phenomenon the Jaipur Literature Festival.
Headlining Words on Water is acclaimed writer and historian William Dalrymple.

One of Britain’s greatest historians, Dalrymple is the author of the classic In Xanadu, the Wolfson Prize-winning White Mughals and the Hemingway Prize-winning Return of a King. He is a broadcaster and television presenter, and founder of the Jaipur Literary Festival. In his just-released ‘macro-history’, The Anarchy, Dalrymple tells the remarkable story of the rise of the first global corporate power, the East India Company, unfolding a timely cautionary tale.

Dalrymple is the special guest at an intimate Literary Boat Cruise on Wednesday 6 November. Co-hosted by Mandurah Cruises, tickets include canapes and two glasses of sparkling wine, and an audience with Dalrymple, from 4pm to 6pm.

As well as enjoying captivating literary and cultural discussions, guests can get their hearts pumping and spirits soaring at two free all-ages Bollywood dance workshops on 6 and 7 November at Mandurah Performing Arts Centre. Run by Gilles Chuyen, who has taught Bollywood dance in India, UK and South Africa for 25 years, participants will have the opportunity to experience the sheer joy and electric energy of Bollywood dance. The one-hour workshops run from 3:30pm to 4:30pm.
