Bollywood Wedding returned in July 2013!
A hit with critics and audiences alike and awarded the "Best Outdoor Interactive Theatre Event" by The Georgia Straight, South Asian Arts brought back the most unique wedding of the year!
What exactly is Bollywood Wedding? It's an elaborate & hilarious, outdoor, interactive dance and theatre event as two young Indians are brought together in an arranged marriage. Indian weddings are colourful and extravagant with fabulous clothing, an occasional melt down, some serious drama and lots of dancing. All of these elements were brought to life with a cast of 12 amazing actors, along with the always dazzling Shiamak dance team!
Held outdoors in a beautiful garden setting, the proceedings began in the light of the early evening and ended with the beautiful setting of the sun, alongside the breathtaking snow-capped mountains of Vancouver. It was the perfect Bollywood formula!
The audience moved from one location to another, taking in various scenes of the play, including the engagement, mehndi, maiyan, milni and of course the wedding itself. The evening ended with a big, interactive dance party at the wedding reception.
No effort was spared in making it a grand and entertaining affair. If you've never been to an Indian wedding, this was your opportunity to participate!
