History of Indian Theatre: The History of Indian Theatre goes back to more than 5000 years. The first one named as Natyashastra was written by Bharat Muni. Theatre in India started as a narrative form such as singing, dancing and reciting. The emphasis was always given to literature, Indian music, mime, dance, Indian painting, and also shadow theatre. Once started just a narrative form, Indian theatre gradually developed as an independent form of expression. The development of Indian theatre can be divided in three parts namely, Theatre in ancient India, Theatre in medieval India and Contemporary Indian Theatre. The history of Indian drama also proves that the marked change in the socio political scenario helped in the development of modern Indian theatre. The history of Indian theatre is therefore the chronicle of changing traditions in India.
