About Us

A Digital Series

Over the past five years, India by the Bay (IBB)has established itself as one of Hong Kong’s landmark cultural festivals on the strength of its rich and diverse programming. IBB fuses the classical and contemporary across art, music, theatre, dance, food, literature, film and wellness – essential ingredients of India’s multi-cultural identity. The much-awaited sixth edition of IBB is back with a completely new format. This edition of the much-loved festival will be presented through a digital series – ‘India by the Bay: A Digital Series’. The series, a prelude to the IBB 2021, will telecast the episodes from 15th to 18th October 2020 reaching out to a wide audience, across a diaspora of communities.

Initially, the 2020 edition had been planned for the month of February. Due to the pandemic, the main “on-ground” edition has had to be moved forward to 2021. However, our determination to support the arts and bring India’s vibrant culture to Hong Kong annually has prompted us to go ‘Digital’ and adapt to this new ‘normal’. Even as cities and countries are shutting down their borders; it is imperative that the flow of cultural ideas is not constrained and it is with this intent that we conceived the digital series in partnership with Asia SocietyHong Kong Center.

Co-presented by Teamwork Arts and Asia Society Hong Kong Center, India by the Bay has put India firmly on Hong Kong’s cultural landscape on the strength of its rich and a diverse palette of programming. The week-long celebration of the arts includes the classical and contemporary, across genres of music, theatre, dance, food, wellness, film, and literature.
