Theatre as a participatory medium has played a very important role in healthy societal processes. It needs constant research and training of young talents, to reflect the changes occurring in the cultural life.
With this goal, the Batubhai Umarwadia Dramatic Research, Education and Training Institute (BUDRETI), a public trust, launched Theatre and Media Centre (TMC), in 2000 for training, research, publication, documentation and dissemination of information in the broad areas of theatre and mass media.
TMC also built on the legacy of Dhrujaati and the Garage Studio Theatre, active since 1975. TMC provides access to resources in media and theatre including hands-on exposure to current technology and methods of production.
Our campus has under one roof a unique black box studio for media productions or theatre performances, a live editing capable suite, a library and archives. TMC-BUDRETI has been set up and mentored by Hasmukh Baradi.
