More than 40 members of the staff at ASB Bank will take to the stage at the Auckland Diwali 2017 Festival on October 14 and October 15, 2017.
The staff will perform at the main stage at Aotea Centre on two nights of one of the largest events organised by Auckland.
The staff have been rehearsing every weekend for the last several months with the involvement of their family and friends to create street and main stage performances that are now a part of Auckland Diwali 2017.
The ASB performance group recruited external choreographer Kesha Surti from Khottey Sikkey to help create the dance.
ASB’s Mohit Kumar has driven the ASB performance, and has been overwhelmed with the commitment from the group.
ASB Head of Community, Sponsorship and Events Mark Graham said that ASB is pleased to support the Auckland Diwali Festival for the third successive year.
“ASB is proud to once again be involved in the Auckland Diwali Festival. Bringing the bright lights and vibrant colours of India to the diverse Auckland community, the festival has established itself as a special date in Auckland’s cultural calendar.
“We are delighted to see ASB staff of many different nationalities taking their enjoyment of the festival one step further by getting involved in the Auckland Diwali Festival ASB staff performance,” he said.
