15th Bharat Rang Mahotsav 2013

Bharat Rang Mahotsav was established a decade ago by the National School of Drama to stimulate the growth and development of theatre across the country. Originally a national festival showcasing the work of the most creative theatre workers in India, it has evolved to international scope, hosting theatre companies from around the world, and is now the largest theatre festival of Asia. A series of wrap around programs around the festival include – sight specific, installation based, music and dance theatre projects and performances, a lecture, interactive sessions with the directors, a seminar on " Temporal spaces, corporeality and embodiment in Tagore's theatrical works" and five photographic exhibitions.

ITFok 2013, Kerala

The 5th International Theatre Festival of Kerala (ITFoK) is designed to bring some of the best contemporary theatre of the world, with an emphasis on Europe. The festival is scheduled to take place from 15th to 22nd of January 2013. As noticeable numbers of intercultural experiments are happening in world theatre, the young generation of Indian theatre too is collaborating with their counterparts from world across. In this context, fifth ITFoK is an attempt to explore the wide spectrum of innovative and experimental theatre activities of Europe. Relatively small and travel-friendly but truly experimental in language of expression and comparatively young theatre artistes both from Europe and India will be in focus of the ITFoK this year.

IFAs Museum Fellowship

India Foundation for the Arts (IFA) in collaboration with the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya (CSMVS) invite applications for the Museum Fellowship, an initiative to support emerging curators to develop innovative curatorial models for public engagement using museum objects, their art historical, aesthetic, technological and material content. This particular fellowship is intended to develop the curatorial content for a mobile exhibition of museum artifacts, to be delivered using a specially designed bus.

The Museum Fellowship has been initiated with the two-fold objective of energising museum and alternative audience spaces and providing emerging curators with an opportunity to generate new critical and creative approaches to public engagement.

In the coming months, CSMVS will be launching its Museum on Wheels (a specially designed bus) as part of a commitment to bringing its collection to diverse audiences across Maharashtra's towns and villages. We are seeking an emerging curator to collaborate with CSMVS in curating a travelling exhibition for the Museum on Wheels and developing a public engagement program which might include conversations, story-telling, art and theatre workshops, or other participatory events.
