Mandala is a group of young, enthusiastic, dedicated and diverse theatre workers. After long training and individual involvement in this field, Mandala Theatre-Nepal was formed to work together. We want to develop a participatory and inclusive space open to various genres of literature and inalienably linked to theatre.
The advancement of theatrical arts is our commitment; the production of innovative and creative works of art is our goal. We have devoted ourselves to exploring, popularizing and preserving the varieties of traditional and indigenous theatrical forms of our society, and we look ahead to work even more actively in the days ahead.
