Theatre groups from all over the world came together for the 12-day long annual India Theatre Olympiad festival organized by Utkal Yuva Sanskrutika Sanh (UYSS) from July 1 to 12.

The theatrical extravaganza, which is in its 23rd edition this year, has seen more than 100 different culture groups, with a galaxy of 2,500 performing artists taking part. These include eminent and promising play writers, directors, theater artists, classic and folk dancers, vocalists, musicians and critics. Participants has come from 20 Indian states and 15 countries including Algeria, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Finland, Hong Kong, Iran, Italy, Malaysia, Mexico, Nepal, Romania, Russia, Sierra Leone, UAE and United Kingdom.

The India Theatre Olympiad is the only international theatre festival of its kind in India. The festival gains its support from the Department of Tourism and Culture as well as the District Administration of Cuttack. This mega theatre Olympiad is usually organized in September every year for the past 22 year. This time the dates for the festival were brought forward from September to July as the organizers received numerous calls from participants, requesting them to coincide the event with the famous festival of chariots in Puri known as Rath Yatra.

The festival witnesses a huge inflow of tourists from India and other countries. A youth theatre company from Russia, Moscow, is also participating in the Olympiad with two colorful shows. One of them – based on the plot of famous “Pippi Longstocking” by Swedish author Astrid Lindgren – will be performed in Russian Centre of Science and Culture in New Delhi on July, 13, at 7.00pm. All are cordially welcomed.
