Ten Second Takeaway

Contemporary Arts Week is almost upon us and we’re super excited by the amazing performances they have lined up for us. We’ve scoured the list and found five ways you can enjoy Contemporary Arts Week for free this October.

Gig it up

With the temperatures slowly dropping, we’re gearing up for some cool summer evenings full of concerts and performances. And that’s why we’re super stoked that Contemporary Arts Week has lined up gigs by some amazing bands like The Iyer Project, Basanti Aur Woah, and The Urban EarlyMen {all of whom are performing at DLF Promenade} to give us a week to remember.

The drama of dance

Welcome a sea of nostalgia from your college days as dance and drama societies from Hansraj, Kamla Nehru, Hindu, Venky, and JMC bring their A-game. The tango doesn’t end there; you can also watch some of the best and budding choreographers in the country, like Bhumika Arora, Raja Anand, and Tuba Ali showcase some of their best pieces.

Keeping up with karaoke

We believe there’s a pop-star hidden in each one of us just waiting to take on the spotlight. While we can’t say much about a career as a pop-star, we can definitely point you in the direction of Summer House Café, where you can get a preview of the life you secretly desire. Grab that mic and croon away, folks. It’ll be so worth it, we swear.

Slam poetry

Contemporary Arts Week is more than just about music, dance, and theatre, and if you’re looking for that something extra, make your way to DLF Promenade for Poetry Slam organised by Delhi Poetry Slam. Sit back and enjoy as poets get competitive & creative with their performances.

Outstanding stand-up

Comedy is nothing short of an art itself. Come and watch Nitin Mirani, Dubai-based comic genius, as he gives you your laughter fix for the week. PS: We hear he does a mean Shahrukh Khan mimicry!

When: 3-10th October

Where: Across DLF Promenade, Summerhouse Café, The Hybrid, Informal
