Tantidhatri programmeTantidhatri programmeTantidhatri – is a festival of women performing arts practitioners across the globe. This is a festival inspired from the Transit festival created by actress and writer Julia Varley of Odin Teatret Denmark, also a founder of Magdalena Project. This festival is the first of its kind in India.

Like the Transit and The Magdalena Project, Tantidhatri Festival in India is committed to nurturing an awareness of women's contribution to performing arts and to support exploration and research by offering concrete opportunities to the discerning women, both in the profession and in life. Tantidhatri functions internationally to give voice to the concerns of women working in theatre today. The Tantidhatri Festival encourages women to examine their role in the future of theatre, by presenting their work, by sharing methodologies, by examining form as well as content and by venturing into new collaborative projects.
