India is host to the 8th Theatre Olympics

Given ancient Greece's role as a precursor to theatre in the West, it is not surprising that the Theatre Olympics was established in 1993 in Delphi, Greece, at the initiative of the famous Greek theatre director, Theodoros Terzopoulos.

Its 8th edition now takes place in India.

Professor Waman Kendre is the Festival Director. He is supported by Dr Arjun Deo Charan, Ratan Thiyam, Dr Mohan Agashe, Dr Chandrashekhar Kambhar and others in the Advisory Committee. Given the scale of the festival there is an Observation Committee, as well as other functions such as Finance and Accommodation to enable the coordination and the functioning of this mega event, organised by the National School of Drama (NSD) and the Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India.

Plays from India and from abroad are part of the festival. An estimated 25000 artistes from over 30 countries are said to take part in this event, which is scheduled to run from 17th February to 8th April 2018 across seventeen cities in India, with its concluding leg in Mumbai.

The festival's theme "Flag of Friendship" seeks to celebrate universal friendship and human values.
