An alternative platform for performing arts and art related activities, the first ever theatre house, ‘Inter Act Art Theatre House’ was opened at Obeysekerapura, Rajagiriya recently.
A well-known concept around world, the theatre house named ‘Inter Act Art Theatre House’ is a comparative mini theatre with the facilities for drama, music, dancing or cinema screening.
A concept by playwright M. Safeer, IAATH, is a long time endeavour by the group of artistes. IAATH is comprised of a theatre named ‘Black Box’ with 50 seating capacity, theatre academy, library and a mini bookshop for the young and adults.
The theatre house is open for other purposes like seminars, talks, workshops, discussion and exhibitions. “The main purpose of this theatre house is to create a place for a social discussion and it can be used as a place to study art and broaden our knowledge,” said M. Safeer.
In addition we hope to create a cultural group together with a group of writers, directors, actors and other artistes.
“This will be a place for those creators who search for an alternative theatre different to traditional proscenium theatre to showcase their creations and those who dream to have their productions together with creators of international artistes,” Safeer said.
