About India By The Bay
A Festival Celebrating India In Hongkong
The fourth and 2018 chapter of the festival will take place between 2nd February and 9th February at multiple venues. The Festival will be a platform which seamlessly showcases the best of artistic expression encapsulating vignettes of India’s diverse ethnic sensibilities.
India’s many communities contribute to her cultural gamut manifesting in the country’s incomparable range in art, craft, attire, jewellery, cuisine, and dialect. And IBB 2018 will pay tribute to just this: the many wonders the various regions of India exemplify and incorporate them into a magnificent whole. The Festival’s rich and diverse palette will be set by the opening gala dinner with a Parsi theme: of exquisite culinary flavours from a unique Zoroastrian community who came to India from the Persian Gulf as early as the 8th century CE.
After this singularly exciting start, the Festival will spread its wings to include cinema, theatre, mythology, literature, discourse, music, and dance. In 2018, IBB’s programming will flavour the classic with a quirky and contemporary edge representing fresh perspectives from an evolving India through art, music, dance theatre, literature, Bollywood, discourse and analysis, and the customary IBB favourite, “Family Day”, are all part of the delectable IBB medley.
