You will be happy to learn that we are organising 24th. India Theatre Olympiad : International Theatre Festival – 2016 in the millennium city of Cuttack, Odisha ( Orissa ) state – situated on the eastern coast of India.

This annual International Theatre Festival (Drama, Dance & Music) is the only of its kind in the country and this year it will be held from 2nd – 13th of September, 2016.

This International event will provide a wonderful platform, a small world stage, for countries to strengthen ties with the people of India. Forging bonds through the performing arts, theatre will be a wonderful tool to help youngsters develop self confidence, self esteem and global understanding of one another. It is also a great way to promote peace, understanding and empathy in an otherwise intolerant world by forging forward national integrity, international amity and universal brotherhood through cross cultural synthesis and social assimilation.

We are pleased to inform that this Theatre Olympiad welcomes performing arts companies, groups and artists to present their productions in all genres of performing arts including Theatre (drama, comedy, mime, pantomime, puppet, fingers theatre, visual), Dance (western, modern, folk, classical etc.), Music (opera, classical, musical, contemporary, jazz, folk etc.) and other forms of performing arts.
