NCPA@ThePark aims to provide a distinctive and immersive experience, showcasing live performances spanning dance, international music, western classical music, and spoken word.

Continuing its tradition, NCPA@ThePark returns with a new edition each year as part of its community outreach initiative. The program aims to democratize art and make it accessible to the public nationwide, inviting audiences to enjoy captivating performances in prominent outdoor venues.

Khushroo N. Suntook, Chairman, NCPA mentioned, “It has always been the NCPA’s endeavour to make the performing arts accessible to the public and this initiative, supported by partners like the Bengaluru Hubba and Westside, makes it possible. The NCPA is delighted to take yet another promising edition of the ‘NCPA@ThePark’ to one of the country’s culturally flourishing cities – Bengaluru, to spread the joy of live performances beyond Mumbai. We look forward to welcoming residents of the city to join us with their friends and family in this celebration as we continue to promote the arts and strengthen communities across the country.”

We are excited to take the platform to Bengaluru and share our mutual love for the performing arts and we hope to see all of you join us in this special celebration.”

V Ravichandar, Chief Facilitator, BLR Hubba and Former Director, Bangalore International Centre said, “We are pleased that NCPA’s first foray outside Mumbai is to delight the Bengaluru audiences with a diverse set of performing arts and culture events that are free to attend. This is in sync with our desire to revitalise our common public spaces by making them come alive and part of the monthly programming for Bengalureans in the lead-up to BLR Hubba 2024 in the first fortnight of December.”
