Alchemy Festival 2017
May 19, 2017 at 1:00 pm - May 29, 2017 at 10:30 pm
Showcasing the dynamic creativity and cultural connections between South Asia and the UK, the Alchemy Festival returns to Southbank Centre this May.
Across 11 days, the festival will play host to contemporary dance, performance, music and literature from international and British artists.
This year’s schedule includes performances by indie pop duo Parekh & Singh, purveyors of Bollywood sound Vishal & Shekar, and Sufi vocalist Abida Parveen, to name but a few. Alongside these performances, there are also discussions and workshops taking place, ranging from conversation about migration and identity, to introductions to traditional South Asian dance.
The festival, which is now in its eighth year, has grown to become the largest festival inspired by South Asian culture outside of the subcontinent.
There is a fee for selected events. Many events are taking place for free.
