Theatrical communication is a dramatic art form. The trying to impart or sharing of information by talking, trying to write, or using some other medium (Cambridge Phonetic spellings) is what communication entails. Humanity's basic inclination is to perform on stage. We gather knowledge from our surroundings. Information = knowledge. So we collect a lot of data or sensory data using our five senses clear view, having to hear, odour, grasp, and flavours. We express ourselves in such a manner that we encounter anything from our globe through theatre. Theatre is an experience. Theatre also informs. Audiences become imaginative as actors share their experiences or details. Viewers reminisce about their own life experience while watching the theatre. It is the most fundamental relationship between the actor or entertainer and the viewing public.This research is a modest attempt to perceive the theatre as a communication media that can considerably add to the potential to efficientlyperform various communication functions. It also aims to discuss the importance of addressing communication studies from an Indian viewpoint, highlighting parallels between Aristotle's Poetics and Rhetoric and Bharata's Ntyasstra.
