A surprise hit – The Black Box Theatre

Inside a former industrial shed, off Karve Raod, in the middle of Covid-19 pandemic, the first black box theatre space, simply titled “The Box”, opened in August. 

As the name suggests, a black box theatre has walls and floors which are black, preferred due to it’s “neutrality” during theatre performances and the structures are always boxy in nature, with high ceilings which makes for flexible lighting and good acoustics.

Since the theatres have opened on November 5, The Box has played host to plays every weekend. “We are hosting Theatron’s Year End theatre festival in December, and in the coming weeks we are hosting Satish Alekar’s play Mahanivaran, as well as a play by Purushottam Berde. Our bookings for all major slots in December are full,” said Pradeep Vaidya, theatre professional and the proprietor of The Box.
