Days to go:
World Theatre Day celebrates the value and importance of the theatre as a diverse and dynamic art form. Inaugurated by the International Theatre Institute (ITI) and celebrated annually on the 27th March since 1962, it recognises the power of theatre to foster understanding, share perspectives, and challenge community and societal issues. Theatre professionals, theatre companies, schools, and organizations participate in this event by organizing various events and activities.
The connection between theatre and India is historical, diverse, and rich. An art form epitomizing storytelling and social commentary, theatre in India has not only been used as a medium of entertainment but also for social reform and political resistance. The observance of World Theatre Day takes on a heightened significance in this context. On this day, artists and spectators alike are encouraged to appreciate the profound influence theatre holds in echoing Indian societal conditions and contributing to its cultural landscape.
In India, World Theatre Day is observed by organizing an array of activities and events that underpin the theme of the year. These range from performing street plays and classical dances to screenplay rehearsals and workshops. Noted theatre veterans and emerging talents step into the limelight, presenting diverse plays in regional and national languages. Theatre institutions across the country open their doors to audiences, fostering dialogue between cultures, communities, and generations. World Theatre Day occurs each year on 27th of March, uplifting the spirit of unity and connection in the world of theatre.
