  "Qualitative Exploration of the Creative Process of Actors"

हम एक भारतीय हैं,
और हमारे हर काम, राष्ट्रीयता के साथ है
हम अपने देश को बचाने के लिए और साफ करने की सबसे मजबूत उपकरण के साथ धन्य हैं
जो "थिएटर" और "फिल्म"  है
कला का काम समाज में संतुलन बनाने के लिए है,
और अभिनेता मुख्य भूमिका निभाते हैं l

To rekindle the dying art form of “Hindi Theater,”  Mr. Abhijeet Choudhary (Founder and Director) established “SWATANTRA THEATRE"  in Pune in the year 2006. Today, with great endurance it stands on a pedestal channeled towards contemporary notions and social issues.

    Since its inception, Swatantra Theater, one of the leading Hindi Theatre groups in Pune, has endeavored in entertaining the audience with humorous, social and contemporaneous plays at renowned institutes like FILM & TELEVISION INSTITUTE OF INDIA, IIT-INDIA, NDA, AFMC, Symbiosis Media College, Bharti Vidyapeeth, BMCC, MMCC, etc. The group has produced several Hindi productions which include innovative and exclusive production value, contemporary aesthetics and unique, contemporary content have been the attributes of each Swatantra Theater production.

Swatantra's recent project on resilience of migrant community studied mental health with a different perspective. The methodology of Theater was used and a community theatre play was made. Along with De Montfort University ,Leicester. Excavate Theatre London, TISS, IHMP the research was carried out. Based in the entire process a film called as Suno Suno has been made. We are very happy to share it with all. After 2yrs of field work interacting with families and listening to their stories, we help the community put on a play about their stories and celebrate their lives.The underlying theme of the drama was to show to the communities that seeking help from the people you trust, showing compassion and teamwork all make for better mental health
