Aarohan Theatre Group


Aarohan was founded in 1982 by a group of theatre workers. In Nepali, Aarohan means to climb. It also means performing space. The purpose is to create a Nepali theatre movement. They perform proscenium theatre by Nepali playwrights and adapt foreign plays to the Nepali context. They have given training throughout the country, helping communities create their own theatre groups. They also perform Forum Theatre and train marginalised and oppressed people to use theatre as a weapon to improve their lives. In 2002, they founded Gurukul, Nepal’s first school of theatre. They believe that an indigenous theatre movement is both an alternative to a globalized consumer-oriented mass-media and a tool for empowering communities and individuals rendered marginal in modern Nepal.
