2002 a few actors initiated a summer festival, the Barn Theatre,
hosted in the beginning in a crowded community centre. Later the
event was moved to a new site: a completely rebuilt and enlarged
barn. The annual cultural event taking place during summer (June –
September) offers to the rural communities of the Niraj Valley living
far from the cultural centres a buoyant cultural milieu. Its purpose
is to preserve and revive the love and need for culture of the rural
communities, to preserve traditions.
