The Company Theatre (TCT) was formed in 1993 with a singular commitment to theatre and the performance arts. It is an ensemble of professionals who work with an inter-disciplinary & multi-cultural approach to diverse art forms, rooted in a search for the truth of human experience.
TCT has since created performances ranging from physical mime and absurdist drama to clown narratives and musical comedies. These productions have travelled to audiences from historical venues like the Globe in London UK to theatres in small towns of India. Alongside performances, TCT has also conducted workshops and master classes, organized theatre festivals and contributed to developing an energized performance culture around India.
With a firm belief in inter-disciplinary methodologies for artistic growth, TCT has also formulated platforms for dialogue with architects, scientists, business houses, environmentalists and individuals from other fields of expertise. In order to continually explore new modes of expression and share creative knowledges, TCT actively seeks collaborations with diverse cultural bodies and artists with varied backgrounds, skill sets and interests.
The Company Theatre’s need to focus on research and intensive process work for creating new performance languages led to the making of TCT Workspace, an international residency for performing arts, situated in the countryside of Maharashtra. TCT Workspace is a facility for individual artists as well as company ensembles to experiment, innovate and explore in a dedicated residential performing arts laboratory.The Company Theatre is a not-for-profit organization, registered as a public charitable trust with the charity commissioner Mumbai, India.
