The festival, in its 3rd edition, presented by Assitej India, is designed to expose children to handpicked international performances as well as present various forms of Indian theatre. For the first time TIFLI brings 6 plays over 3 days to Mumbai! The festival is also being held in Delhi and Hyderabad this year.

Spread over 3 days from 7th to 9th December 2016, TIFLI brings you plays, workshops and master classes, showcasing Indian and international theatre for young audiences.

There will be pre-show interaction and post-show interaction for 15-30 minutes.

1. Workshops for Children: these 1-2 hour long sessions will have children of different age groups actively engaging with various genres of theatre and theatre skills, facilitated by professionals from India and overseas.

2. Workshops for Teachers: these workshops guided by thinkers and practitioners of TYA will open up many possibilities to teachers on how theatre can enrich teaching-learning processes.

3. Workshops for TYA Practitioners: these workshops are designed to share TYA practices of professionals from around India and the world, with their Mumbai counterparts, in order to enrich the pool of theatre for young in the city.

4. Master classes for teachers and/or practitioners: these sessions will be in-depth workshop and theory sessions by masters of TYA, in their philosophy and practice of working for the young, designed for adults who creatively engage with children.
