BINGLISH

A free exhibition charting the fascinating story of connections between India & the UK

ONGOING


“Binglish” = Black English; Being English; Bombay English; Beastly English...

A word coined by Artistic Director Jatinder Verma to describe the fusion of Indian and English languages that has been underway since at least the 17th century.


From Englishmen watching nautches (dances) to Victorian music halls transplanted to the heat and dust of India and the emergence of modern Bollywood cinema - wander through the exhibition to see the routes of our shared heritage and theatrical connections.
