Aarohan-Gurukul Kathmandu (आरोहण-गुरूकुल काठमाण्डौं)

Aarohan performs Proscenium Theater by Nepali playwrights along with the adaptation of foreign plays to the Nepali context. Popularly known as Gurukul or Aarohan Gurukul, it also provides training throughout the country, helping communities create their own theater groups. The theater that also performs Forum Theater trains marginalized and oppressed people to use theater as a weapon to improve their lives. Nepal’s first school of theater, Gurukul, was established in 2002 with a vision of providing theater education and training the individuals who would later become the next generation theater artist in Nepal. Aarohan was the first of its kind to formally launch theater education as well as introduce theater as a profession.
