This summer, the National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA) brings you 23 workshops, 5 plays and four films, in what it calls the Summer Fiesta. So, pull up your kid’s socks and let him do something fruitful this summer. The Summer Fiesta was started in 2010 to reach out to children and offer them an exciting way to spend their time during their vacation.

The Summer Fiesta last year, was for ten days, during which kids enjoyed a selection of films and plays.  Workshops in writing and drama were also conducted by Sunil Shanbag, Shaili Sathyu, Tarun Singh Negi, Manisha Lakhe, Puja Sarup, Chatura Rao, Kumud Mishra and Gopal Tiwari. The workshops on enhancing imagination, acting, expression and improvisation helped the kids learn skills in an environment that was informal and non-competitive.

This year, it has a bigger range of workshops in dance, drama, movement, puppetry, circus arts, theatre games etc., conducted by K.P. Rakesh (Kalakshetra, Chennai), Mehneer Sudan, Seema Mehta, Shaun Williams, Shaizia Jifri and others in association with acknowledged experts like Jehan Maneckshaw and his Theatre Professionals team, and Kaizaad Kotwal of Poor Box Productions.  Some of the finest theatre groups in Mumbai like Akvarious and Gillo will present plays for children. There is also a selection of delightful films from all over the world especially designed for children.
