Thespo, the popular youth theatre festival has entered its 21st year. Started by Quasar Thakore Padamsee and Toral Shah as a youth theatre movement in 1999, it has produced theatre and filmmakers (via workshops and festival) who have made a name for themselves. Some of them include Kashin Shetty and Siddharth Kumar. We invited theatrewallah and former participant Saloni Shukla to pick five must-attend events.

  1. Agni aur Barkha by Samagam Rangamandal, Jabalpur: It is by one of my favourite playwrights, Girish Karnad, and definitely worth a watch. ON December 20, 6 pm and 9 pm
  2. Sane Ani Company by Aajkal, Pune: It talks about a theatre troupe trying to reinvent itself. It's relevant for theatre people as they will connect to it. For others, it could be insightful. ON December 19, 6 pm and 9 pm
  3. Aksariyat Akliyat by Alternative Space Project, New Delhi: Set in Kashmir, it is relevant in today's time. ON December 19, 7 pm
