Mumbai, we thought, faced a serious shortage of theatre spaces.
Theatrical work in the city, we felt, was being handicapped by the constraints of over-familiar and over-used venues.
We started the industrial theatre co. to discover and popularize alternative spaces for theatre in Mumbai.
Before too long, we discovered how complicated the dynamics of getting people to frequent exciting new spaces really are.
And quickly moved back to using theatres.
Today we'll work anywhere.
