Old World Theatre Festival’10: An Awesome Doze for Theatre Addicts

“To do or not to do” has never been the question. OWTF now in its 9th year weathers all storms to bring at the year’s end the best in theatre from around the country.

A tree that has resolutely taken root in the fertile soil of the theatre world, weathered stormy environs such as the lack of sponsors, braved odds to the point of funds none at all, that has flowered under the sunny “we-will-do-it-nonetheless” manner typical of the theatre fraternity, and that has branched out in more directions than one with the members coming back as journalists and reporters and advisors to cover the festivity- such is the legacy of Old World Theatre that thrives on in its aspiration to present the best of theatre from across India to the capitol city!

What started off as an attempt to represent the who’s who of top directors has today become a much sought after platform amongst theatre houses. Anupam Kher, Makrand Deshpande, Naseeruddin Shah, Anurag Kashyap, Joy Sengupta, Feroz Abbas Khan- are just some of the names representing the finest in the theatre repertoire over the years. Synonymous with veteran directors, supreme acting, swift backstage managers, plays spanning from the classics to the contemporary- the festival presents a plethora of theatrical insights and altitudes achieved over the years.

A much awaited segment of the festival being the Collegiate – the slice in the chunk has acted as a catalyst for younger actors to channelize their creative energies overflowing the brim, into a mould fitted to nurture and shape theatrical fervor. A stage for friendly rivalries, mutual jostling, a mentor who guides their inspired imagination into healthy criticism of each other’s works- the Collegiate is a shared segment much looked forward to for the joy of collective theatre that it provokes.

From start to finish, it is lights, sound and action- on the go!
