Marathi Theatre Festival a Stage for Marathi Stories

An NCPA Presentation

2022 is the year of global renewal. As we come out on the other side of the Covid-19 pandemic, we look to our past to build the future. We embrace the theatrical heritage and diversity of India by relaunching our flagship festivals Pratibimb (Marathi), Vasant (Gujarati) and Ananda (Hindi). The festivals will focus on established companies as they take to our stages, with a view to showcase the very best theatre from around the country.

2023 takes this endeavour a step further and will see the premiere of a new play, commissioned by the NCPA, in each language. This is part of our commitment to the creation, and celebration of creation, of new work in multiple languages.

This brave new world will be what we make it. We have had time to reflect during the lockdown. And now is the time to let the coiled spring of creative energy open out with all its vigour.

The NCPA is delighted to relaunch the Pratibimb Marathi Natya Utsav in January 2022. Pratibimb reflects the vibrant tradition of theatre in Maharashtra known for its thought-provoking themes that present the world around us in a new light.
Plays, readings, talks and discussions by the best names in contemporary Marathi theatre are part of this three-day celebration.

Supported by Shilpa Kumar
