And still in adolescence…

Nandikar (Bengali: নান্দীকার) is a theatre group in India. The group has its headquarters in Kolkata in the state of West Bengal, but works around the world.

We are a 57-year-old theatre institution from Kolkata, India. We have been at the forefront of the national theatre movement since our inception in 1960. Our logo was designed by Satyajit Ray. For diversity, quality and scale of its sustained activities, Nandikar has earned a niche in the national cultural calendar.


Nandikar has produced about 80 Plays, performed these nearly 8500 times across the nation, featuring in all major National/State Festivals, as well as abroad. Quite a number of its productions, e.g. NatyakarerSandhaneChhatiCharitra, Tin Poysar Pala, Bhalomanush, Football, Antigone, etc., have been performed for more than 400 nights each.

National Theatre Festival, organised by Nandkar and in its 33rd year now, is one of the foremost events in the theatre calendar of India.

Our theatre and communication training programs and workshops, tailor-made for actors, children, college students and corporates, are pioneering work in the field of application of performing arts in communication skill development and personality development.

We work with differently abled persons, correctional home inmates, deprived persons and residents of red light areas.
