Our Theatre House
was established in 1990 as a center for practical research. Here,
in natural surroundings, we have created conditions for study, training
and performing work.
Theatre House is located within a large tribal rural zone cultivated
with ancient methods.
There are no big cities in vicinity and we are only few kilometres
away from Santiniketan- Bolpur (3 hours by train from Calcutta).
Santiniketan is well known all over India and abroad thanks to Rabindra
Nath Tagore, Indian poet and Nobel Prize winner, who founded here
the International University Visva-Bharati.
Situated on the edge of the forest, the center with its four houses
provides accommodation for up to 40 people. The complex includes
a kitchen with a large dinning-room, a central performance hall
with a traditional clay floor and an outdoor performing space.
center is provided with nearly 4 acres of land that include
paddy fields, vegetable garden and fruit orchard, all cultivated
with organic methods. There is also a large pond.
The diet is based on Indian cuisine prepared with homegrown
food and homemade dairy products. The drinking water comes from
two deep underground sources and is thoroughly filtered.
