President's Note

Wings Cultural Society, started as an idea about making a positive change. Tarique and I decided to set up an organization to achieve that goal. On 7th of August, 2009, we received a certificate of registration, under the Societies Act, for our group. Since that day, our group's efforts have been focused on exploring the rich diversity of theatre practices that India has to offer.
Our commitment is to never close our minds to different ideas, and thus, we have on many occasions invited theatre practitioners of different cultural backgrounds to work with us. The result of such a practice is a confluence of cultural, aesthetical and social values that are anchored by a strong mutual need for creative expression. This also reflects in one of our fundamental beliefs, i.e. that theatre can be practiced in a sustainable manner while constantly welcoming and working with newcomers.
Through the years we have noticed that if given a chance, people completely uninitiated in theatre can deliver impressive performances as well as develop strong individualities and thinking. This undeniably benefits society as a whole.
