Pathey Nimidam is a 10-minute Tamil play festival. It involves the participation of numerous Tamil and non-Tamil theatre practitioners—directors, playwrights and actors—in the creation of diverse works wrought from mutual respect and cultural exchange. This Open Call for Pathey Nimidam aims to identify and unearth new playwrights and provide them with a platform to hone their skills.
Scripts selected through the Open Call will be translated to Tamil (if necessary) and staged as a 10-minute play as part of Pathey Nimidam, presented in Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay's Raga series. The playwright will be limited to not more than three cast members and a director to stage their play. All plays will need to keep strictly within the stipulated duration of 10 minutes. There will be a performance fee provided for each playwright whose script is selected for the festival.
