Street Theatre

Sarwanam initiated street theatre in Nepal by performing two plays, "Hami Basanta Khojiraachau" (We are searching for the spring) and "Samapta Asamapta" (End unend) in A.D 1982. By breaking the strong conservative myth that theatre could not be performed without a stage, lights, curtains, props and all such technical equipments, Sarwanam marveled everyone by showcasing a heart touching play beneath the colossal sky. The play was performed in Tribhuwanm University, Kathmandu and was directed by Sarwanam's founder and director Ashesh Malla.

For a developing country like Nepal, proscenium theatre is an expensive art. Most of the districts lack well equipped halls. Street theatre has popularized theatre culture as it can be performed anywhere. It is due to street theatre that today plays are constantly being performed even in the most rural parts of Nepal. This medium has also proved very effective to create awareness about various necessary things of life.
