Pink Gajah Theatre
Our theatre focuses on the unconventional. Hence our name – Pink Gajah – a play on the white elephant in the room. We enjoy putting up subjects on stage which are not often thought about by mass society.
Pink Gajah believes in the potency of theatre-making. At the theatre, people gather, stop, and soak in a show. For an hour or two, the audience is suspended in time as they bear witness to a performance. They may take home messages or lessons that change their lives forever, or maybe they wouldn’t. Either way, theatre is cathartic, healing and meditative.
At Pink Gajah, we hope to trigger thought and emotion in our audiences in order for them to think about deep issues and subjects.
A Pink Gajah work is always questioning, always questing. We are on a journey to examine the deeper emotional and intellectual issues insociety, and tell stories that move humanity at its core. The heart of our work is the social structure of a human being: the way we interact with society and the environment. Our priority is not to entertain you. Our priority is to resonate.
