First International Virtual Conference

"Role of Applied Theatre in Indian Society"

First International Virtual Conference

Why Applied Theatre Conference?

In India we have been using Applied Theatre methodology for a long time but unfortunately we have never recognized it as a different field of study. It is a need of time to recognize efforts taken by various applied theatre practitioners in India, document the process and initiate a research oriented dialogue for a better future. The virtual international conference can help in following ways:


Why Conference?

In India we have been using Applied Theatre methodology for a long time but unfortunately we have never recognized it as a different field of study. It is a need of time to recognize efforts taken by various applied theatre practitioners in India, document the process and initiate a research oriented dialogue for a better future. The virtual international conference can help in following ways:

  • To create awareness about Applied Theatre practices in India
  • Exchange of knowledge
  • Identifying different methodologies and areas of work
  • Documentation of important practices in India
  • Create a network of practitioners in India

Why Virtual Conference?

Virtual is the new normal and in the current scenario it seems difficult to gather people together but that shouldn’t stop us from learning something new. Acceptance to digital platforms and convenience are the two important aspects and thus we propose to have this entire conference on a virtual platform. It becomes easy to record and preserve the virtual presentations and can be made available for those with minimum accessibility along with the theatre departments and universities in India and abroad to create awareness about Applied Theatre practices in India.

This will be the first year of the conference but we are planning to have an Applied Theatre virtual conference every year.


Conference E-Book:

Documenting the knowledge is very much important but in India it is ignored by many practitioners and thus we do not have a literature to support our practices. In India we need to refer to the literature written by western authors about Indian practices with their own perspective. It is a high time to write about our own practices. The conference E-Book is thus of very much importance. The E-Book comprising all the articles will be the first ever conference book on Applied Theatre in India. This E-Book can become a part of the libraries of the Theatre Departments in Indian universities and Universities abroad.
