ISHARA INTERNATIONAL PUPPET THEATRE FESTIVAL 2016!

 

The 14th Ishara International Puppet Theatre Festival is back with a bang at Epicentre, Gurgaon with a host of national and international performances scheduled from 5th to 14th February 2016! With 9 countries all set to performance in this edition, the Festival promises to be a grand and vibrant affair.

Since its inception in 2001, the Festival has brought to India over 90 international puppetry companies and promoted numerous indigenous productions. This year, the audience will get to witness world-class performances from Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, USA, Italy, Switzerland, Russia and Sweden. India will be represented by the Katkath Puppet Trust in the musical Dinosaur featuring human-size puppets.

“Each year, interest in the festival grows”, says leading Indian puppeteer and head of the Ishara Festival, Dadi Pudumjee. “Groups have already applied for next year. The idea is to give a platform to both modern and traditional puppet theatre.”

Ishara has provided evocative and memorable entertainment and education for Indian audiences for many years now. Produced by Teamwork Productions, the Festival is seen as an established platform to further multimedia arts in India and has played a vital role in reviving the art of puppetry in the country.
