The Good Indian Bride is a living manifestation of a distorted legacy, exploring the patriarchal subtexts of North Indian wedding rituals, both in the diaspora and the subcontinent.
The highly anticipated premiere showcase of ‘The Good Indian Bride’ performance art exhibit, by award-winning Artist/Director, Ms Mutta, is unveiling for one-night-only in Toronto.
The idea of The Good Indian Bride began as a photography exhibit at Toronto’s Nuit Blanche in 2015 and the 2015 Feminist Art Conference in Toronto. This photography exhibit is now coming to life through performance art for audiences to physically experience what it really means to be a “good Indian bride”.
“The ultimate goal growing up was to ensure that you were married. No degrees, no accolades, no awards, your dreams, desires and ambitions meant absolutely nothing if you were not married,” said Ms. Mutta
This artistic labour of love is a masterful creation pushing boundaries and demanding that we engage in dialogue around South Asian marriage rituals, with all its beauty, grandeur, and darkness.
