Dear Cultural Friends,

You will be happy to learn that every year since 1996, we have been organising India Theatre Olympiad as International Theatre Festival in the miilennium city of Cuttack, Odisha ( Orissa ) state - situated on the eastern coast of India.

This annual International Theatre Festival ( Drama, Dance & Music ) is only of its kind in the country and this year it will be held from 1st. to 5th October, 2013.

This International event will provide wonderful platform, a small world stage, for countries to strengthen ties with the people of India. Forging bonds through the performing arts, as you know Theatre will be a wonderful tool to help youngsters develop self confidence, self esteem and global understanding of one another. It is also a great way to promote peace,  understanding and empathy in an otherwise intolerant world by forge forward  national integrity, international amity and universal brotherhood through cross cultural synthesis and social assimilation.

We are pleased to inform, that this Theatre Olympiad welcomes performing arts companies, groups and artists to present their productions in all genres of performing arts including theatre ( drama, comedy, mime, pantomime, puppet, fingers theatre, visual ), dance (modern, folk, classical etc.), music  ( opera, classical, musical, contemporary, jazz, folk etc. ) and other forms of performing arts. 

Prior to this International Event, depicting rich, multi-dimensional and varied performing arts of India, a 11-days long biggest cultural extravaganza of the 21st. National Drama, Dance & Music Competition, with a participation of more than 3500 Indian artists, will also be held from 20th. to 30th. September, 2013.

The Last Date for receiving Application with other documents is on or before 31st. July, 2013.

It would be a great privilege on our part if your esteemed Organisation send a Theatre Troupe ( Drama / Dance ) to represent glorious cultural heritage of your country in this global Festival.

It would also be highly appreciated if you kindly communicate informations regarding our Festival among your esteemed member groups.

Sincerely looking forward to your active co-operation, prestigious participation and a long lasting cultural relationship.
