The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival concluded yesterday after a multitude of events were performed and presented across 14 categories this year. We bring you our sightings from this annual event held in Mumbai, India.
Sighting #1: Festival Theme
This year’s theme was ‘Hara Ghoda’ meaning the Green Horse, featuring the wonders of nature through artistic representations in performances and art.
Sighting #2: Wishes ARE horses and we ride them!
In our last year’s article titled 6 Experiences at Kala Ghoda Arts Festival 2017 we lamented the absence of leading lights who performed in the festival’s formative years.
As we looked up the schedules this year, lo and behold, our wish had been granted! It is proof that when you want something, the universe does conspire to help you achieve it. And believe it or not, we had explicitly wished for Ustad Zakir Hussain.
It is also a matter of great pride for us that one of the band members of Shastriya Kids is Nihaal, a student of AXF, an NGO we passionately support for their extraordinary work. Know more about them here: angelxpress.org
Sighting #3: Art Installations
Here are the installations that stood out and caught our eye. It was both amusing and heartening, to see youngsters clamoring to click selfies with the artworks.
To take a photograph of yourself with the art is like a personal participation with the artists creation. The more we visit art events and festivals, the more we are witnessing this whole new alternative way through which contemporary art is being experienced.
