Welcome to Theatre Village

Natya Chetana

In 1990, Natya Chetana visualised to build up its community living in a village set up and could find a barren and lonely land near the town Khurda, 30 kilometers away from Bhubaneswar. It has been developing very slowly and gradually, without any Government or Corporate support. The name of this new village is named as Natya Gram (Theatre Village).
