Kanpur reels in the beauty of technology & dramatics as city theatre goes virtual amid pandemic!

Cultural activities rise in Kanpur City as theatre go digital

If you were absolutely bored of watching similar TV shows, following a mundane routine with no change or variety, the Kanpur theatres are here to your rescue! Improvising artistes and ceasing opportunity in the middle of a pandemic crisis. Theatres in the city opt for digital screening and escalate productions to reach the audience rather than glooming over the loss of live audience. We all are aware that digitisation is the future, however, the city of Kanpur has turned it into a reality by hosting a 5-day digital theatre festival in the month of October. Receiving an overwhelming response from the audience.

The sky is the limit!


Star productions like Ek aur Dronacharya, Mohan Se Mahatma, Flirt, Purush and Gagan Damama Bajyo were performed during the festival, providing quality entertainment to people. This has also boosted cultural activities in the city which were on a low since the last 6 months given the constant fear of the spread of Coronavirus.

Theatre enthusiasts from all over the city can now tune into online streaming of these plays, without worrying about the availability of tickets! The festival organised in the city were free of cost, but theatre artists believe that if quality and variety are made available to the audiences, they won't mind paying for the shows, and these earnings can be then invested in creating better and bigger productions.

The heightened response to digital plays have lead the actors to believe that they can target a larger audience by means of going digital, as the number of people tuning into digital screenings was way over than the live audience count.

Knock Knock

The post-COVID-19 world projects a growth for the theatre, with the development of a popular medium and the Kanpur theatres stand testimony to this fact! From local stories, to global ones, there is no stopping theatres now which have taken the digital route towards success!
