Who we are

  We devise our work together as an ensemble
                          We pride ourselves on having a strong bilingual ensemble,
         who are working towards becoming
                              a trilingual ensemble - able to work and perform in
                                      English, Sinhala and Tamil
   In addition to theatre productions,
       we work to strengthen the surrounding sub-culture of the arts in Sri Lanka
                          and also to create stronger links between 
                                                     theatre and wider society, both local and global.
  We have a training programme for artistes,a theatre education programme
     for schools and several other theatre projects.
