Apart from the plays,a workshop on Commedia Dell ‘Arte — an Italian form of physical theatre — is one of the highlights of the festival. Don’t miss the Kalki Koechlin-written and performed play Colour Blind,which is based on Tagore’s relationship with Argentinian writer Victorie O Campo. The festival will begin on November 29 at NCPA in Nariman Point.
