17th Edition of Old World Theatre Festival Pushes Boundaries with the Gen Next of Indian Theatre

Recognized as one of the oldest and most prestigious theatre festivals in Delhi, Old World Theatre Festival brings the best of Indian plays. 15 plays over a period of 9 days bring the theatre enthusiast closer to the stage. A pan Indian constellation of original scripts from Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Pune, Mumbai and Kerala are scheduled to come together to create riveting experiences for Delhites.

Responding to significant strands of theatre practice from across the country, the line-up features productions with a unique voice and performance language that speaks to our times. It is a spectrum that mirrors the continuities in Indian Theatre from the earliest to the most contemporary.

Kutiyattam (from Kerala), one of the most stylized and earliest forms of Sanskrit theatre with roots extending to even the Tamil Koothu, which dates as far back as Sangam era (3rd century BC - 3rd century AD) opens the festival onOct 20, Sat, at 6.30pm. Kutiyattam has been recognized by UNESCO as a “Masterpiece of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity”. The productions scheduled to visit are representative of the multidimensional character of theatre today with the dynamic interplay of text with sound, choreography, physical theatre, local and people’s histories to fluid genders, food, sign language and gestures to deconstruct a theatre goer’s usual expectations. The fact that for the first time a National Theatre Live Broadcast eased its way into the line-up is a clear indication of how the festival is extending its boundaries to accommodate various formats that have come to influence the theatre goer’s imagination in recent times(NTLive Broadcast is an initiative by the Royal National Theatre in London which broadcasts theatreperformances to cinemas and arts centres around the world).Along with affordable reasonable ticket prices (Rs.500 being the highest denomination), there are free performances as well.

Announcing the festival Vidyun Singh, Director Programmes, Habitat World, India Habitat Centre, described the line up as a “watershed in the history of the festival”. “I am so excited to bring the Gen Next of Indian theatre to the heart of India. The number of original scripts marked by unexpected take offs and performance styles does clearly point to a wave of theatre groups passionate to push the boundaries to tell the stories of today. And it is to their passion and talent, despite all the limitations of funding and performance infrastructure in the country, that we owe this refreshing edition that will move you out of your comfort zones. ”
