Thespo 22 : Double The Dramagiri
India's First Digital Global Youth Theatre Festival
In the wake of the pandemic, we are taking this year’s edition of Thespo fully digital! From the festival to our year-round events, we will be hosting the “party” online. This year is special for us owing not only to the fact that we are discovering a new medium altogether, but also to the fact that a whole new set of possibilities for creative expression has cropped up for all our young creators.
We are excited to curate and organise the festival, our community and skill building activities as well as other showcase events, all online!
Since geography no longer presents an obstacle to us, we are excited to announce that this year’s festival will truly be a global, digital youth theatre festival! So, as long as you are under 25 years of age, you will find that the festival has exciting opportunities for you to showcase and hone your talent – no matter where you’re from!
The First Call
Each year Thespo organises The First Call – an orientation meeting of-sorts to familiarise young people with Thespo, its mission, activites and the many ways they can get involved. The event is open to all young people curious about Thespo or the theatre world in general.
This year we will be hosting The First Call online on Zoom on 14 August @6.30 pm IST. Click on the button before to register yourself for this free event!
The First Call will also feature live performances and conversations with some very special Thespo Alumni.
All the world’s a stage. No really. Tell the story you want to on any digital medium, from any part of the globe. All you have to do is register a live performance in any language and genre, with a minimum duration of 45 minutes. Any Medium. Any language. Any genre.
