Bollywood at Portland Center Stage

For Portland Center Stage’s 2010 Gala, WCEP transformed the lobby of the Gerding Theatre into a festive Bollywood-themed bash. Guests entered the event under a 12 foot tower that showcased Bollywood films and were greeted by Bollywood dancers. The perimeter was lined with plush lounges, each displaying unique colors and sheer fabrics accented with hanging beads. Indian food stations were catered by The Art of Catering and above head, an umbrella of fabric and lanterns were draped from the 40 foot ceiling to create a magical canopy over the entire set.
