In a unique and rare form of festivity, the remote Bargah town in Orissa transforms itself into the world's largest open-air theatre every year. The town celebrates the Dhanu festival, which marks the triumph of Hindu God Krishna over his tyrant uncle-king Kans, by enacting the entire episode. During the 11-day festival, the entire village is turned into a stage and almost every villager acts as an artist.
