Abstract:
The speaker will talk about her deep concern with the rapid urbanisation of India, the complete lack of planning for arts spaces in these new megalopolis or even smaller towns and the dire need to nurture arts engagements. The lecture will focus on how this nurturing will impact theatre practice across the country.
Speaker:
Ms. Sanjna Kapoor, co-founder of Junoon, is well-known for her passionate work with theatre over two decades, and for having built Prithvi Theatre into one of India’s premier cultural hubs. She is responsible for having brought to Indian audiences some of the finest of world and Indian theatre, being the first to introduce a touring theatre festival into the Indian scene. She has also played a key role as catalyst for theatre for children. Her vision, commitment and enthusiasm ensure that she keeps bringing the richness of theatre into people’s lives in multiple ways. She currently spearheads Junoon’s school programme, and continues the legacy of both the Kapoors and the Kendals to take theatre to people across the country. Ms. Kapoor has also been responsible for initiating the India Theatre Forum network for theatre practitioners.
