THESPO 11 - The Festival is near!

The hunt is over!! It's finally done. After traveling, scavenging, nearly missing trains, sitting long hours and watching nearly 70 plays from across India, Amruta Sant and Himanshu Sitlani can finally sit down and begin curating the festival. This year, we had entries from Bombay, Bangalore, Delhi, Kanpur, Kodaikanal, Pilani, Pune and also Shimla. There even some late entrants from Goa, who were too late for the fest, but perhaps something can happen for Thespo at Prithvi.

All the details should be ready by next month's issues, so the curious cats among you will just have to wait!

To those who missed out, you can still be part of Thespo 11. You can get involved in any of the following activities:

PLATFORM PERFORMANCES Perform short pieces of around 15 minutes.

Learn how to make a documentary on any aspect of theatre.

Design posters for the short listed plays of Thespo 11.

WORKSHOPS On different disciplines of theatre. Conducted by the best in the field. Both during the festival and in the lead up.
