Alcheringa is not just about IIT Guwahati. It is indeed a lot more. And letting the crowd of our home-town feel the heat is something that we desire to achieve. Spreading smiles and excitement in every nook and corner of the city is our motto. With such thoughts in mind, we take the fest to Guwahti, we take the fest to you. Come January, and you can feel the Alcher buzz in the air in the city of Guwahati. Just to turn the heat up, students from IIT Guwahati show up at the funkiest landmarks of the city and go crazy with the city folks! 21 years it has been since the city accepted us as one of its own. 21 years of shared fun and achievements. We intend to keep the legacy going. Alcher on the Move is an extravaganza of its own, connecting Guwahati with Alcheringa like never before! Let's spread the cheer!!!
Streets where Moose started winning our hearts, where the real 'bounce' happened.
Alcheringa, gives you the chance to flaunt what you got. This event is all about people who want to do HipHop, free-styling, break dance, popping, locking, B-Boying, tutting, waving, threading and dance their hearts out.
If you think you can challenge the opposite group face to face then this event is for you. Two crews step it up and battle it out and make their way to the very top of the crowd. Time to make your opponent bite dust.
We bring the world to Alcheringa! Talented artists from all around the globe come to be a part of the extravaganza. An attempt at bringing the folklore of the entire planet together, the World Carnival is one of our prime attractions as the crowd gets to see multi-faceted performances by foreign artists. The crowd is left in awe as they perform, dance, weave together notes of soulful music and spark magic. Fun and frolic; joy and smiles all around, the 'ooh's of ecstasy and the 'aah's of surprise, these are the emotions sweeling up in the campus as the night approaches and the world carnival takes over. Functioning as the link between the events during the day and the concerts after sunset, the World Carnival is undoubtedly another young, but a very integral addition to the very soul of Alcheringa!!! Come over, be amazed by the world!
Geographical and political borders are no boundaries for us as we attempt to hunt for talent throughout the nation. Alcheringa visits the major suburbs of the country looking for hidden gems and to provide them with a stage toperform and excel in their art form. The initiative assists us in unearthing the best from the nook and corners of the country, and also provides a small source of entertainment for people of those cities. We are slowly but steadily spreading our wings all across the country as one of the most exciting platforms for talented young people. City Auditions are expeted to move into newer places every surpassing year. So, wait for us. We are coming to you!!!
Alcheringa organises quite a few online events along with the entire extravaganza taking place in the campus from 2nd to 5th of Feb 2017.
