- A charity concert by a dance group from India took place at the Nis Puppet Theater. It was sponsored by the Embassy of India in Serbia and the City of Nis, in collaboration with the New Delhi Cultural Council. The Dance Group arrived in Serbia at the time of the floods, so earlier scheduled performances were canceled due to circumstances. The dance group that came from India has six members. They introduced themselves to Nis audience by the “katak” Indian dance. This dance is a “dance for soul”, as guests from far India said, and it offers healing.
