Event Description : THEATRE FEST : 17th Edition of  Ishara International Puppet Theatre Festival

Let the celebrations begin! From Brazil to Italy, Iceland to Tunisia - the Ishara International Puppet Theatre Festival has once again travelled the world to curate its fantastic line-up for 2019! We celebrate our 17th anniversary with a diverse range of breathtaking performances, which communicate across language barriers & define the social, cultural & emotional bonds humanity shares together.

Alongside the best from India on display, performers from across the four continents have come together once again, to showcase a dazzling array of talent. From the traditional to modern forms of puppetry, ranging from rod to string puppets; to mixed performances with dance, theatre, music & more – we invite audiences of all ages to join us on this new magical journey.

From humble beginnings in 2001, the Ishara International Puppet Theatre Festival has now grown into one of Asia’s largest & most prestigious puppet festivals. Graced by thousands of visitors each year, it has thrilled, moved & inspired audiences from India & across the world.  The festival is nurtured & supported by the Ishara Puppet Theatre Trust, the country’s leading established platform for Indian & International puppetry. For over thirty years, the trust has been the center for creative & innovative puppetry work, with a mission to educate, enrich, & transform communities.

Produced by Teamworks Arts; the festival’s creative environment enables puppeteers, artists & performers to stretch their imagination & to deliver unforgettable & stunning performances. With tremendous acclaim & support from groups & performers across the world, the festival has brought to India over 150 international puppetry companies & promoted numerous indigenous productions. Countries which have participated & showcased their works include the UK, Spain, Turkey, Brazil, Sweden, Norway, Israel, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, Iran, Afghanistan, Ireland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Australia & USA.

“It’s been over thirty years of Ishara puppet theatre and the love for puppetry has grown in people. For us, 2019 is the year of celebration, and one will witness that in the performances of the new groups from Brazil to Iceland along with various unconventional acts like the one by Italy using soap bubbles as a medium for puppetry. There’s a lot in store and we are delighted to have the audience experience it all”, says Dadi D Pudumjee, founder, The Ishara Puppet Theatre Trust.

India boasts a historical association with puppetry & the performing arts which magically dates back to 2nd century B.C - so it’s fitting that the country is home to the festival. This year the 17th Ishara International Puppet Theatre Festival will take place from 1stFebruary to 9th February 2019 at the Indian Habitat Centre in New Delhi & the Tagore Theatre, Chandigarh.

Participating Countries: Afghanistan, Brazil, Germany, Iceland, India, Iran, Ireland, Italy, Tunisia & UK.
