Ten Second Takeaway

Here’s the scoop on how you can enjoy Contemporary Arts Week this October, especially if you’re in the mood for something more than just music concerts and dance performances.

Clowning around

We don’t know about you, but we’ve never been particularly fond of clowns. But the play ‘Romeo, Juliet, and the Seven Clowns’ definitely has us intrigued enough to look beyond our…aversion…to clowns. Directed by Sukhmani Kohli, this play {which has evolved through the experiences of all its cast members} manages to somehow juxtapose clowning and the love between Romeo & Juliet. We don’t know how they’ll do it, but we think this one of those things you need to be there for to understand.

Vocals only

Fans of Glee and Pitch Perfect, this is for you. Members of the a capella group Vocal Rasta, although relatively new, have been on a roll since last year. They are now ready for Contemporary Arts Week, and will be bringing their best vocals forward with renditions of ‘King of the Swingers’ from Jungle Book, ‘Forever Young’ by Joan Baez, and ‘Hum Dekho Chal Pade,’ a song composed by Kailash Kher.

Dancing spirits

Ashley Lobo is known around the circuit for The Danceworx, but he has another dance company called the Navdhara India Dance Theatre {NIDT}, which does things a little differently. Using this unique technique called Prana Paint & FlowTM, NIDT will perform ‘Amaara,’ that combines the physics of the contemporary form of dance with the spiritual philosophies of India and Indian dance. We are definitely excited about this.

All mixed up

There’s a whole assortment of performances lined up by Contemporary Arts Week that can give you your ‘unusual’ fix for the week. Wish to see street art happening live? Delhi Street Art’s got you covered. They even have stand-up comedian Appurv Gupta, who’ll be asking us a very important question—are we in a RelationShip or a RelationShit? {We hope for all our sakes that it’s the former}.

When: 3rd-10th October

Where: Across Instituto Cervantes, LTG Auditorium, Nehru Park, Akshara Auditorium, and other venues
