Studio Safdar is dedicated to creating an alternate and affordable space in Delhi for staging and experimenting with the arts.
"Looking further into the future, if we want to sow the seeds for a truly people-oriented leftist theatre, we need this kind of a construction. At the same time we have a dream of making this institute a training centre for groups like ours who could come to us from different parts of the country. We could arrange for their board and lodging and organize a fifteen-day workshop. During three months of the year we could also tour the country. But right now it seems a farfetched dream."
– Safdar Hashmi, 1988
