Visthar Ranga Shaale, Koppal/India

Visthar Ranga Shaale (VRS) is a project of Visthar, located in Koppal, in north Karnataka.

Apart from offering vocational drama training (including acting, and writing for theatre), the school’s primary thrust will be to introduce its students to the processes of ‘theatre making’. The multifaceted theatre-making course is designed to for the student to critically engage in creative processes, enabling them to transform ideas into action.

In line with Visthar’s core belief that ‘another world is possible’ the theatre school will have a special focus on the marginalised communities of our society – aiming – to bring about a cultural transformation.
