Thespo at Prithvi

Thespo at Prithvi was started in 2007
to provide a more regular showcasing of the best youth theatre talent in the country. Thus every first Tuesday and Wednesday each month, the next generation of theatre wallahs stride across the hallowed Prithvi stage.

Thespo at Prithvi is also providing an opportunity for young theatre groups to showcase their short plays, as a pre show appetizer before the main show on each Thespo at Prithvi show day.

October saw Marathi Madness take over at Prithvi. Two strong Marathi plays performed, and the even the non-Marathi speaking audience seemed to enjoy the evenings. Unfortunately Prithvi doesn't quite attract enough of a Marathi audience, which is a pity because both Baby and Dalan are powerful plays with great performances. We hope to have more of these in the future, and maybe create a new hub for Marathi non-commercial theatre.
On the workshop from both Adam Dow and Faezeh Jalali enthralled us with their unique techniques and styles. Adam took us through the world of improvised theatre where there is no script and Faezeh introduced us to the intricacies of the Laban Movement. We hope to have more such workshops in the months to come, so watch this space for details.

In November Thespo at Prithvi takes a sabbatical. The two major reasons for this are the advent of the Prithvi Festival which dominates all space and resources of the theatre community; and our very own Thespo 11, with which we are incredibly busy with. It promises to be quite an exciting festival come December. But TAP will be back in January, with perhaps a new serving of the best that youth theatre has to offer. Hope to see you then.
