Whose theatre is it anyway– that’s the theme of this year’s Bharat Rang Mahotsav, the annual theatre festival of National School of Drama (NSD), Delhi. The 19th edition will feature 94 performances from 16 Indian states and 12 countries including England, Russia, Italy, Turkey, Afghanistan, Tajikistan, Romania, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh will participate.
“We want to boost our cultural ties with other countries. Some of the play directors are coming for a discussion, too. Living legend series, master classes, youth forum and director’s meet will be an integral part of the festival,” says Prof. Waman Kendre, director of NSD. This festival will represent various facets of Indian theatre including classical, modern, and folk performances such as Marsiya, Kirtan and Chakiyar Koothu. World Theatre Forum will also visit the campus where eminent theatre personalities will discuss a wide range of topics.
The performances will be held at Abhimanch, Open Air Theatre, Bahumukh and Sammukh at the NSD Campus as well as LTG Auditorium, Kamani Auditorium and Shri Centre for Performing Arts at Mandi House.
