About The Company Theatre:
For the last 20 years The Company Theatre has been creating theatre ranging from physical mime to absurdist drama to clown adventures and musical sagas. The work has travelled from historical venues like the Globe Theatre in London to theatres in Bareilly and Indore. A few years ago The Company Theatre finally realised its long-standing dream - the creation of a workspace dedicated entirely to performing arts - The TCT Workspace at Kamshet. This 5-acre centre set amidst the rural landscape of the Western Ghats is a one-of-its kind contemporary performance research haven built to facilitate national/international artist exchanges, training programmes and the creation of new work in theatre, dance or music.
