  "Qualitative Exploration of the Creative Process of Actors"

हम एक भारतीय हैं,
और हमारे हर काम, राष्ट्रीयता के साथ है
हम अपने देश को बचाने के लिए और साफ करने की सबसे मजबूत उपकरण के साथ धन्य हैं
जो "थिएटर" और "फिल्म"  है
कला का काम समाज में संतुलन बनाने के लिए है,
और अभिनेता मुख्य भूमिका निभाते हैं l

To rekindle the dying art form of “Hindi Theater,”  Mr. Abhijeet Choudhary (Founder and Director) established “SWATANTRA THEATRE"  in Pune in the year 2006. Today, with great endurance it stands on a pedestal channeled towards contemporary notions and social issues.

    Since its inception, Swatantra Theater, one of the leading Hindi Theatre groups in Pune, has endeavored in entertaining the audience with humorous, social and contemporaneous plays at renowned institutes like FILM & TELEVISION INSTITUTE OF INDIA, IIT-INDIA, NDA, AFMC, Symbiosis Media College, Bharti Vidyapeeth, BMCC, MMCC, etc. The group has produced several Hindi productions which include innovative and exclusive production value, contemporary aesthetics and unique, contemporary content have been the attributes of each Swatantra Theater production.

World Theatre Day is celebrated enthusiastically on 27th March every year. 

Due to the Global Crisis of Coronavirus and to support the orders from Government who is trying wholeheartedly to stop the pandemic,

Now we decide to come together to celebrate this day through digital Medium because the art has no barrier!

We at Swatantra Theatre have decided to Celebrate this World Theatre Day for Children. Due to sudden holidays, the popping energies in children are not getting channelized. Though parents are continuing to work from home, Children are suffering the most. No school, no play is not less boredom.

Swatantra Theatre over time has produced so many insightful, value-creating Children Theatre Plays including based on works of Sudha Murthy, P L Deshpande, Subhadra Kumari Chauhan and biographies of Sant Tukaram, Dadasaheb Phalke, and Akbar Birbal and many more..

On the occasion, we are going to make 6 to 8 of the play videos available online. Some plays are already available on the Swatantra YouTube channel while some will be uploaded for the occasion. This will be a 'Digital Children Theatre Festival'.Children can watch the plays and share their feedback on our FB page. This is how we can keep interacting, sharing and celebrating Theatre.
