For the 6th year running, Nautanki Theatre’s Annual Theatre Festival was a celebration in South Asian languages, transcending cultural and geographical boundaries. For the first time, we presented three plays in language based on the topic, “Partition and Diaspora” marking 75 years of the biggest human migration in South Asia and indeed the history of the world.

Three theatre groups who have been performed in language, within their community space for many years, presented diverse and poignant short plays under the SATF banner.

Nautanki endeavours to provide a common performing platform for these groups, encouraging a cross-cultural and inter-language exchange. Nautanki worked along with three of these theatre groups to brought you three ‘one act’ plays over two nights.
