New Delhi: Organised by Theatre I-Entertainment Trust and supported by Korean Cultural Centre India, Pitara International TYA Festival 2020 is born from the idea of celebrating childhood. In its second year, the festival will bring together five professional performances for audiences from December 19-23, on a digital platform. It will feature national and international performances from India, Ireland and South Korea across genres of toddler’s theatre, object theatre, storytelling and dance theatre.

The festival aspires to provide quality theatre for children, in the comfort and safety of their own homes. In this new online avatar, the performances will be premiering online and will be available to watch anytime for the next 72 hours. The festival can be seen at


According to the organisers, Pitara is meant to ignite the moments of exploration and wonder for children and encourage adults to rediscover the child in them and relive the moments which are getting sidelined due to the pandemic. Pitara does this through digital theatre – a mode of learning by enquiry, experiencing and evidencing without fear of any physical contact with outsiders

Hwang Il-yong, director of Korean Cultural Centre India says, “We have decided to support this event for encouraging children to overcome the difficult times, and nourishing them with cultural contents in terms of their hearts and souls. We are cheering and supporting the artists, at the same time not to be discouraged in their journey to nourish children, the future of humanity.”
