Thespo Youth Theatre Festival
Organised annually by Thespo, a youth theatre movement started in 1999, this Mumbai-based festival is a platform by and for anyone under the age of 25 years to perform, engage with peers and experts, and form connections with theatre practitioners. For over two decades, Thespo has showcased the best of youth theatre from across the country in the form of full-length plays, platform performances, play readings and devised performances.
At Thespo, theatre stalwarts and practitioners from around the globe collaborate with emerging talent to create unique and memorable performances. The festival includes regular workshops covering various aspects of theatre.
Thespo believes in bringing together youth from across all fields, language groups and artforms who are united by a common love for theatre. Among Thespo’s notable alumni are Richa Chadha, Ali Fazal, Jim Sarbh and Kalki Koechlin.
In 2020 and 2021, the festival was conducted digitally with a vision to tell stories in innovative ways with the help of technology. It returned to an in-person format between 06 and 11 December 2022.
