Principles of Theatre of Relevance
1. A Theatre that commits its creative excellence to make the world more “Better & Humane”.
2. That is relevant to the context of the society and owes its social responsibility, not to Art just for the Art sake.
3. Which caters to human needs and provide itself as a platform for expression.
4. Which explores itself as a medium of change/development.
5. That comes out from the ' limits of entertainment ' to a way of living.
(“Theatre of Relevance” is initiated by Theatre Thinker “Manjul Bhardwaj” on August 12, 1992 and since then it is practiced and implemented at Indian and at international level.)
Today in the era of the destruction of nature in the name of development, it is a challenge for humans to be human.
