All potential spoken words enthusiasts, Indira Gandhi National Centre for the Arts, has organised an International Storytellers Festival, Kathakar and you really don't want to want to miss out on it! 

IGNCA is back with their annual ‘Kathakar’ festival, where a bunch of storytellers from all over the world are going to be reading out their rapturous stories. The storytellers on board are Tholpavakoothu Sangam (Kerala), Danish Husain (Mumbai), Jaishree Sethi (New Delhi), Sarah Rundle (U.K.), Spice Arthur 702 (Japan), Giles Abbott (U.K.) and Katy Cawkwell (U.K.). Nice!

They’ll be telling the epic story of Ramayana via Shadow Puppets from Kerala, the Japanese group will do narratives of Issun Samurai, Star Wars, Hikkyaku Hana-chan and legendary stories of the European nation will also be narrated. 

Plus various mermaid tales, stories from the Silk route and various age-old folk tales from Rajasthan will also be focused on!
