TIFLI International TYA Festival: Sleeping Beauty
Curated by: TIFLI International TYA Festival

For Schools: 10:00 and 12:00 


This version is not a fairy tale, but a Princess’s tale. A Princess born in the suburbs of Liverpool, in a kingdom where famine and unemployment have devastated the landscape, where you are better off in a gang than alone and where the spindle has been replaced by a syringe.


Part of TIFLI 2017 and Bonjour India

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.


Over the years Tifli has grown from just Delhi based festival to a multi city festival. Today Tifli is been organized simultaneously in Delhi, Hyderabad and Mumbai.
