About Bhoomika


Bhoomikaa is an art organization for the people residing in the Washington Metropolitan Area, who have come from Karnataka. Washington Metropolitan area comprises of Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia. Bhoomika has been created for the sole purpose of promoting and fostering the Kannada theatre and language, literature and other cultural activities. It is our intention to introduce/share the richness of our Kannada theater, language and other related arts to the broader community and thereby identifying on the world stage.


At present Bhoomikaa's activites are carried out under two major categories. Drama Section: Production and performance of the classic and highly acclaimed Kannada (occasionally other Indian languages also) plays, particularly their English versions. Educational Section: Monthly discussions, seminars and workshops pertaining to theater arts, language, literature and other related arts.


Bhoomikaa welcomes interested people from any ethnic and cultural background to actively participate in these activities. Age and Sex are never a barrier for such participation. Come on and bring your family and friends also. Share your precious talents and rich experiences generously.

Originated on September 10, 1994, Bhoomikaa became incorporated in Maryland during 1995 as a not for-profit, tax-exempted art organization.

Every second Sunday of the month, Bhoomikaa holds Information Exchange-Discussions related to Kannada Theater, literature and other topics. All interested people are welcome.
