Three Worlds, One Stage explores the preservation of ancient cultural performing arts forms via ethnic Colorado performing artists and the communities that they engage. This is a story of three immigrant artists, who have migrated to Colorado decades ago, and through their struggle and determination, have reached creative heights. Colorado Springs-based Indian dancer, Swagata Banerjee teaches and performs the 2000 year-old tradition of Odissi dance. Her goal is to reach out to people of various cultural backgrounds and teach them one of the oldest Indian classical dance forms and it's relevance in it's social and cultural landscape. Our second character in the film is master drummer and dancer Fara Tolno who is a vivacious, energetic and humorous drummer and dancer, hailing from Guinea West Africa. He plays the West African drums, Dejembe since the age of nine. Through his Project Drum. Finally, to add to this diverse mix we have our third character, Maria Vasquez, a flamenco dancer who owns the school Flamenco Denver. Through the vibrant art form, she is spreading Hispanic heritage in the Colorado community. We deep dive into their journeys as artists and the struggles that came with it. We learn about the history of their arts. All of this builds into a crescendo where the three artists meet at a surprise live fusion event.
