Animated Rangolis, is a bold outdoor spectacle with Rama, Sita and Hanuman towering above audiences on stilts. On 15 October, they weaved their way back to Ayodhya through the crowds thronging Albert Square, Manchester, at the Dashehra Diwali Mela. Interconnected with enormous sashes, twelve Indian dancers articulated shapes and sequences around the characters, inspired by the creation of rangolis. With grateful thanks to Indian Association Manchester.
