In 2005 I joined Uhinee Kolkata for formal theatre training, under the able guidance of Adrija Dasgupta, a Fellow Pass-out from National School of Drama. I learnt the basics of theatre under her mentorship. I acted in various theater productions that she directed, between 2005-2010.
In 2008 I got the overwhelming opportunity to act in the workshop based theatre
production ‘Jhunki’ (The Risk) conducted by the renowned Mr. Steve Clorfiene, student of Yergi Grotowski.
It was a collaboration of American Council and Rabindra Bharati University.
My Paper was on Physical Theatre.
My Guide : Siddhartha Chakraborty (NSD)
Under this program I received a 2 Years’ Fellowship.
