TIFLI International TYA Festival: Grandfather’s House
Curated by: TIFLI International TYA Festival

For schools: 10:00 and 12:00 | For public: 18:30


The story is born in the heart of an old grandfather clock. And when its mysterious works are activated, we are invited to go back in time. This new show by the Company Akselere is partly inspired by the work of Marc Chagall. Creatures and characters appear that seem to have escaped from the canvasses to appear in shadow.


Part of TIFLI 2017 and Bonjour India 


Entry free and open to all. To RSVP and for details write to tiflimumbai@gmail.com

Tifli, which means bachpan, is an International Theatre festival for Children and families. Tifli was started in the year 2014 by Assitej India to provide Indian children platform to watch high quality theatre specially devised and design for them across the globe.  Tifli has also served to teachers, mentors and parents opportunities to see a theatre together with their children without worrying about the content.  Tifli has also provided a platform to Indian artists, working for children in the field of Theatre for children, to showcase their work together with artists from other countries. To share, to discuss, to learn from each other by debating, discussing, watching each other’s work.
