An original theatre experience with a flavour of cinema
mukhOsh was established by a bunch of theatre enthusiasts from the Indian
Institute of Science, Bangalore in 2005.
After several successful shows in the city, we dared to host Moitree, the first
Bangla theatre festival of Bengaluru in 2008, at Ranga Shankara.
We were invited by Sayak, Kolkata, and the Paschim Banga Natya Academy
to perform in Kolkata.
In 2009, we hosted Moitree again, in collaboration with the Paschim Banga
Natya Academy.
