Goans are rich in culture and heritage and possesses myriads of performing arts. Tiatr Drama is one of them. The highlight of Goan drama, however, is their folk drama. Tiatr is one such theatrical form. However, tiatr is a unique form of dramatic art. It is more tham just a folk drama, The plot of a Tiatr is normally divided into 6 or 7 parts. Each part is called a Pordho . In between these Pordhes there are songs and are known as Kantaram . Normally there are 2 or 3 Kantaram in between every two Pordhes.

The Tiatr is a unique art form of Goa. It is solely social in content. The modern day Tiatr, however, does include religious issues. This trend of including religious issues started after Goa attained its liberty. The Tiatr is another instance where mass support plays a crucial role.

i would like to talk here about the various forms of Tiatr. There are broadly three categories of Tiatr namely, Historical, Social and religious. Compared to other categories, historical tiatrs are negligible. Right from the inception of the concept of Tiatr most of the original scripts have dealt with social issues. Mainly the socio economical issues slike the evils of caste system, dowry problems and alcoholism, unity and disunity in the family, value of education, etc. were focussed in the social tiatrs. Political Tiatrs were produced in good numbers only after the Liberation of Goa. And Religious Tiatrs are still normally staged in the Lent season.

Tiatr is a type of musical popular in the state of Goa on the west coast of India. The dramas are performed in the Konkani language and include music, dancing and singing. Performances are often taken from the Ramayana and Mahabarata or more modern social issues and stories. The word tiatr is from the Portuguese word for theater. Tiatr songs and performances are recorded and sold on CD and DVD in Goan markets. They are mainly melodramas about family and domestic life, with each lyricist offering their own explanation for life s varied problems. On April 17th 1982 the first tiatr Italian Bhurgo by Lucasinho Ribeiro was staged in Mumbai. In 2007, the Government of Goa started the Tiart academy to facilitate the development of the Tiart
