Yes, they are back after performing at the Passages International Theatre Festival in Metz, France, and now they have a blog and a Facebook page!
Read about their trip to France here. Love these lines from the writeup: "All these fantasies coexist with the wonderful naiveté of this eminently popular form of theatre. Surabhi does not forget its roots: on the stage there is a small plate with some sand, which the family carries with them everywhere, from the village of Surabhi.”
I am ecstatic! Sometimes, the right thing happens. These guys have the most genuine theatre going, and it had to work for them. It was in the 1980s that Mohan mama first told me about the greatness of Surabhi. He said, "Don't ever miss an opportunity to see Surabhi theatre. It is fantastic." It is, Mohan mama, it is. Thank you for telling me about it.
My first writeup on Surabhi was written on 27 October 2006. You can read it here. They have come a long way, haven't they? Way to go, guys, there's no looking back now.
