Learn more about the color
Playing with colors is an integral part of ColorDance festival. Traditionally colors are produced from naturally occurring sources of pigments like rose petals, sandalwood and spinach leaves. We use colors made from food grade quality cornstarch and biodegradable organic food colors. Moreover, the color is custom manufactured by another US based company right here in United States. All varieties of colors are lab tested as non-toxic (Material safety datasheet is available on request). The colors are completely safe for adults as well as children. Being completely biodegradable, the colors are safe for environment including natural habitat.
When a big group of people plays with colors, it creates a memorable visual experience to any spectator. On the other hand, the participants experience the unadulterated fun, craziness and sportive vibe of the color play. We encourage everybody to be a good sport and join the second group of people! Also please go through few guidelines to make most out of it.
What is ColorDance?
In the northern part of India, the Festival of Color, known as Holi, announces the arrival of spring and the passing of winter. Inspired by epic stories from the old Hindu religion, this ancient festival includes traditional music and dance, while the highlight is participants throwing multicolored powders into the air... or even smearing them onto each other!
The Holi festival slowly seeped into many other cultures through a scattered Indian diaspora, international travelers, Indian holy men popular in the west, and most importantly the Hare Krishna movement. The feeling of oneness and profound sense of freedom, which are two key takeaways from this festival, have attracted millions of people all over the world.
ColorDance is a unique music festival which adopts the theme of the world famous Hindu Festival of Color and blends it with a spirit of music, dance, bonfire and art. This festival encourages participants to play with colors as a social merriment accompanied by youthful music and dance and tries to create a passionate atmosphere filled with togetherness, spirituality, and love.
Athens, home to thousands of university students from many different backgrounds, ethnicities, and cultures, is also a haven for a vibrant contemporary music scene, a community of talented artists, and thousands of music enthusiasts. ColorDance aims to promote local talents and also encourages openness to new ideas. We believe, when everything comes together, it will create such an exhilarating atmosphere that it will become a lifetime experience for all witnesses.
