International Theatre Festival of Kerala, 2019
We are inviting all of you to be part of our upcoming edition of ITFoK.
International Theatre Festival of Kerala (ITFoK) is an annual event organized by the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Akademi for the last ten years which is considered to be the most prominent theatre festival organized in India with such a wide-ranging scope. The very first ITFoK (2008) focused on Asian Theatre and over the years the focus had shifted to Theatre as practiced in many countries/regions all over the world and with different themes like Street Performances, Gender in Theatre, Theatre of Resistance, Body politics in Theatre, Theatre based on Classical texts, Theatre by Masters of the Past and Present, Theatre showing the Afro Asian Cultural Diversity, Latin American Theatre, South East Asian Theatre etc. The last ITFoK (2018), which was a milestone as the 10th edition, focused on Theatre of the Marginalized seeking to ‘reclaim the margins.’
The Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Akademi is happy to announce that the next edition of ITFoK will be organized in Jan 2019, focusing broadly on Asian theatre but with no particular thematic emphasis. A Festival Directorate consisting of three eminent theatre personalities, Mr. M.K.Raina, Ms. Arundhati Nag and Prof. G. Kumara Varma has already been set up to supervise the Festival as a whole. The work on organizing the Festival is in full swing.
Please Wait for the Registration of next Edition of ITFOK!
