About Us

Stories can be a great tool to engage children, help them channelise their energy and further their learning curve. Started in 2013, Teamwork Arts’ Kahaani Festival has travelled far and wide across India, bringing alive the magic of storytelling for children. And much like how stories have a way of transcending borders, time and space, with the boundless possibilities of the internet, we are recreating that magic online.

We, at Teamwork Arts in association with Pratham Books, The Kamini and Vindi Banga Family Trust and Save the Children are delighted to present Kahaani in its digital avatar.

Kahaani Online is like the travelling raconteur that brings together stories from across the globe and celebrates the timeless art of storytelling in its myriad forms. The digital series encourages children to think outside the box and beyond their course books by creating a virtual space where they can fully explore the realm of their imagination and creativity with curated sessions in art, dance, theatre and much more.

Kahaani Online features internationally renowned artistes, storytellers and creative workshops involving role-play, theatre, craftwork and music in a series of curated video sessions that perk up the imagination of children. Kahaani takes its audience on a fun-filled journey to the magical places of enchanted learning, all while sitting at home.

Storytelling

The universal and timeless art of storytelling is a nurturing social activity that remains relevant in our hectic times. Kahaani brings back the leisurely hours spent listening to your grandparents narrating tales from worlds real and imagined. Come by and listen to the stories that fire imaginations, transform, entertain, enrich and connect!

Dance

Dance is at the very heart of the Kahaani experience. Using the swaying of the body to the rhythm of music is one of most effective ways to tell a story and engaging with audiences. Kahaani uses Indian folk and classical dance forms to tell tales from Indian mythology and folklore – essential ingredients to heighten a child’s cultural consciousness.

Art & Craft
