THEATRE FETE: The play ‘All About Women' that was staged at the 7th National Theatre Festival in Kozhikode on Sunday.

Kozhikode: The 7th National Theatre Festival, which broadened the horizons of theatre for Kozhikode over the last 8 days, concluded here on Sunday.

The festival saw Indian theatre breaking out of its age-old moulds and exploring new territories. The festival focussed on including a variety of plays from across the country.

As many as 20 plays belonging to various genres were presented, including two solo performances, two non-verbal plays and one Jatra play (a popular folk-theatre form of West Bengal).

There were six plays in Malayalam, three in Hindi, two each in English, and Bengali, two multilingual plays and one each in Sanskrit and Kashmiri.

Festival director Abhilash Pillai told The Hindu that the public were very cooperative and spontaneous in their reactions during discussions and talks held as part of the festival. He said around 350 artistes had taken performed at the festival.

The people of Kozhikode made the festival a grand success by turning up in large numbers to watch plays. The cricket World Cup and the elections could not divert their attention, the organisers said.
