From the desk of director

I have always been impressed by mime. It is indeed an ancient art. It is my sincere effort to establish this art in Bhopal.

I am perfectly influenced by the mime of veteran mime artists like Shri Gopal Dubey and Rajkumar kambale. I was always expected to perform on the various subject related to mime during the workshops conducted by Shri Habib Tanveer and often performed those mime under his guidance. I have tried to present the synthesis of such subjects blended with some imaginary situations and presented in the form of collage.

I have been associated with theatre since past 17 yrs and during this period I felt motivated towards mime. But was faced with the many problems.

Bhopal is blessed with many veteran groups, which belongs to folk art, theatrical, dance drama and have showcased their talents the national and internationals stages. We are also trying to activate the same platform for Pantomime.
All the artist of my group is new to the subjects of mime and I consider it as a novel experiment for myself also. I look forward to perform interesting and entertaining subjects for audience.

I truly believe that a day will come when mime will create its own place among the theatre lovers.
