Thespo Festival

A barrier-breaking partnership.

ATYP is excited to be collaborating with Thespo (India) to invite young artists aged 18-25 to participate in a digital cross-cultural exchange. We are looking for emerging playwrights, performers and dramaturgs interested in collaborating with Indian artists. They will work together to create short 5-minute plays to be showcased at Thespo’s Digital Festival in December 2021. Selected participants will be offered mentorship and masterclasses during the two-week creative development period.
