About Museum Theatre Company :
Museum Theatre form is an absolutely new, fresh and unconventional form of Storytelling. Here the audience, instead of being stationary or so to say comfortably seated at one place, rather moves within the expanse of a defined space, very much like in an actual museum and all through the length of the show the audiences locate themselves as an integral part of the performance. Museum theatre form is created by Kamal Pruthi and Deepak Srinivasan, faculty at the Srishti School of Arts Bangalore.
