India is, not only vast, it is diverse. It's 1.2 billion people live in 28 states, each unique in its culture, economies, and people. They speak 24 languages and 1,600 dialects. Collectively, they worship thousands of gods and goddesses. There are countless cuisines, and India is rich in arts.

The Kennedy Center for Performing Arts will present maximum India, which will  take a broad look at "the country's diverse arts and culture, from folkloric to classical and contemporary." The festival features "dance, music, theater, film, literature, exhibitions, and cuisine from India's most acclaimed performers, artists, writers, and chefs."

Though people outside the DC-metro region will not necessarily be able to attend, several performances will be available
online. The web site for maximum India offers a wealth of information and videos about India, its arts, and its artists.

maximum India is presented on March 1-20, 2011 by The Kennedy Center in cooperation with Indian Council for Cultural Relations, New Delhi and Embassy of India, Washington, DC.
