Theatre being the choice and challenge, a group of young but competent theatre workers formed "MALDA MALANCHA" in 1993 to devote itself to the task of promoting the glorious tradition of experimental theatre movement which helps in identifying oneself as a human being and not to produce merely a member of the human society. In the process, Malancha ventured to produce some significant modern plays, both original as well as translated. Being proud of the heritage of experimental theatre, Malancha has engaged to dedicate itself more and more in exploring new ideas and ventures towards distinct welfare of this society.
