Current: Not Yet Rated

Indian Popular Theatres foregrounds an aspect of contemporary performance that has for some time warranted but not received serious study. It explores the living traditions of Indian Theatre in terms of its audience and the specific circumstances that surround them, focusing on four key forms:

Bengali Jatra epics

The Pandavani and storytellers of Central India

The progressive New Marathi Theatre of Pune

Safdar Hashmi’s JANAM street theatre

Each of these styles of performance is discussed in detail, building a core understanding around which a wider picture of India’s performative self-expression can be assembled.
