Pakistan’s ‘Lux Style Awards’

Omar returned to Karachi to choreograph three sections of the Fifth Anniversary of the LSA’s in 2006. Omar choreographed the opening ceremony featuring contemporary modern dance. He also choreographed a dance medley to the updated orchestration by composer/arranger Shuja Haider of Pakistan’s hugely popular 60’s actress and playback singer Runa Laila. This section featured a diverse cast, but highlighted Lollywood actress Meera. Omar also choreographed a Broadway-style dance musical based on the music of iconic Nazia and Zoheb Hassan. The cast featured rising stars of Pakistan including Ali Kazmi and Anoushey Ashraf. Omar’s work was well-received -- the News, Pakistan’s most widely read English Daily declared, “It’s a great time for Omar Rahim. Pakistan is finally ready for him now.”
