Since 2008, Akademi organizes International Theatre Festival of Kerala (ITFoK), which is one of the major theatre festivals of India. The ITFoK not only focus on showcasing contemporary theatre, but provides a platform for other folk and traditional theatre forms of Kerala and other parts of the country, for the advantage of the visiting groups from abroad in particular. The groups/artists are put into active and creative interactions each other, which lead to certain level of share and exchange of experience and a fair knowledge of these forms. The performative transformation of street places encourages greater interaction between artiste and the community there by creating multiple spaces of interaction. Edition 9 of ITFOK looks at street where theatre connects with and directly confront the pubic.
