Unmaad 2011: IIMB's annual cultural fest from January 21

The Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore (IIMB) will be hosting Unmaad 2011, a three-day annual cultural festival from 21st to 23rd January.



‘I walk, I talk, I sing, I dance, I question, I
create, I think, therefore I am’— that’s what Unmaad 2011 is about. Unmaad 2011, IIM Bangalore's annual cultural festival, celebrates this silent power that resides in every individual the power to belong, the power to break free, to forge, to overcome and to make a difference.

Spanning a period of three days, Unmaad draws participants from across India and will feature events like dramatics, music performances, dances, quizzes, debates, street plays, professional concerts and the grand Unmaad fashion show. The event has hosted some noteworthy performances by artists, such as Shankar Ehsaan Loy, KK, Kailash Kher, Lucky Ali, Strings and Jethro Tull in the past.

With footfalls of over 30,000, this is one of the major college cultural events in South India. Some of the attractions of Unmaad 2011 include The Unity Concert -- an Indo-Pak pro-nite by Indian Ocean and Strings, and B School of Rock -- Bangalore's biggest rock competition which will be headlined by Fire on Dawson, a rock band from Germany who will be playing for the first time in Bangalore.
In addition to competitions and shows, several workshops will be organized for participants.

 In Unmaad Jan '09 and Oct '09, the dance workshop was conducted by the Shiamak Davar Institute of Performing Arts (SDIPA), by Shiamak Davar's senior most instructors and lead dancers, Leisha Rohira and Snigdha Banerjee. Other workshops include pottery, film making, theater and martial arts.
