Marappachi Theatre

Marappachi is registered as a not-for-profit cultural organization. Founded by Late Poet Inquilab as the Founding President in 2006, it attempts to practice art and theatre that is relevant and contemporary. A. Mangai has been with the group right from its inception. The group addresses deeply ingrained prejudices in our society like caste, class and gender. The group works with students, art practitioners and organisations and movements to address social transformation through theatre. Some of the major productions of the group are Inquilab’s Kurinjippattu and V. Geetha’s Kaala Kanavu, a docu-drama on the history of feminist thought in India. Marappachi has been inclusive of the queer community right from its inception. Members of the group are also engaged in research on theatre history. The group wants to uphold process over product-driven modes of making theatre.
