From films, artworks to music and dance — all forms of art from India and abroad, will come together at an ongoing event in the Capital.Titled Indie Art Week (IAW), the week-long festival features performances by more than 100 artists at six venues spread across the city.
“We wanted to bring different art forms together and we’ve been planning for the whole year,” says Rohan Kulshreshtha, curator of the festival. He adds that there are a lot of music and art events that take place in Delhi but none brings together artists from such diverse backgrounds. “The idea is to give a platform to independent artists. There are also theatre artists who will come with their ensembles. Some international films will also be screened at the festival,” adds Kulshreshtha.
The festival will see performances by 20 bands. “There are music festivals where artists do participate but we are always on the lookout for something new,” says Surojit Dev, drummer of the Delhi-based rock band, Them Clones. “The beauty of this festival is it’s format, where one can pick up ideas from artists in different fields,” Dev adds.
The participating artists are excited that they will be able to witness a swarm of performances and artforms.“The name itself depicts that the festival is as diverse as India, with different arts to be staged. It is providing artists, a platform to showcase their work, good work in front of thousands of people and it’s going to be a thrilling experience,” says Abhiejeet Verma from The Operose Theatre.
