Where do we see ACT?


Making ACT a pan-India movement is the objective of the lifetime. With the support of theatre community, we have managed to reach the metro cities in India. From here, the project would move into the small towns and the intent is to weave this network strong and enable considerable theatre practices which are challenging and open up avenues for theatre aspirants.
Why do we ACT?

ACT festival started as an experiment and over the years it has become the most significant space to nourish diverse theatre practices in the colleges, without any biases.
The intent of the ACT festival is to provide a conducive ecosystem to the immense energy which exists in the collegiate theatre and to channelize the energy positively. In the last decade, the festival has empowered and enabled a lot of not-so-well-known college theatre troupes and will continue to do so.

In a non-threatening environment, ACT strives to raise the bar with each passing year and we hope the professional theatre circuit would gain a lot from this energy.
