STARS OF TOMORROW AT THE CHILDREN’S TIATR COMPETITION
The eighth edition of the Children’s Tiatr Competition organised by Tiatr Academy of Goa will kickstart from today with the opening tiatr, ‘Hem Oxem Koxem?’
Every year, children from all across Goa are encouraged to participate in the Children’s Tiatr Competition. They have to portray their characters on stage and sing the essential solos, duets, trios and quartets, interspersed with the acts. However, since it’s a competition, every performance is marked and these children are taken quiet seriously in the field of tiatr. This year marks the eighth edition of the Children’s Tiatr Competition organised by Tiatr Academy of Goa (TAG) and it has helped create awareness about the importance of child artistes on the Konkani stage. “The competition is open to children up to the age of 16 years and it’s main aim is to involve children in the production and staging of tiatrs. The tiatrs don’t have to be directed by children but they are a part of the other important elements onstage and backstage.
