Third World Institute of Theatre Arts Studies
The Third World Institute of Theatre Art Studies La MaMa, directed by Cecil Guidote with Ellen Stewart, began in the Philippines in 1971. It was further developed in Bombay, India in 1972 and was formalized in Moscow at the ITI Congress. Third World was the name given to developing countries at that time by the United Nations. TWITAS was one of several mechanisms La MaMa developed to support and present performances by indigenous people of the Third World.
