Our Stage: Pleasures and Perils of Theatre Practice in India

Our Stage: Pleasures and Perils of Theatre Practice in India

Editors: Sudhanva Deshpande, Akshara KV, Sameera Iyengar
Publisher: Tulika, New Delhi

In March 2008, over a hundred and forty theatre practitioners, critics, scholars, social scientists, activists, and theatre lovers came together at Ninasam in Heggodu, Karnataka, to discuss, debate, and critique the state of our theatre. This 5-day event organized by the India Theatre Forum was called ‘Not the Drama Seminar: Theatre Practice in India Today’. This was the largest such gathering at one place since the historic Drama Seminar of 1956.

The book OUR STAGE brings together the discussions of those five days, and has contributions by Samik Bandyopadhyaya, G.P. Deshpande, Sadanand Menon, Ram Bapat, Shanta Gokhale, Shiv Vishwanathan, Shyamala Vanarase, K.V. Akshara, Gopal Guru, Sundar Sarukkai, Sanjna Kapoor, Keval Arora, Anmol Vellani, Prabir Purkayastha, Kaushik Sen, Moloyashree Hashmi, Sameera Iyengar, Sudhanva Deshpande, and others. Without doubt, the book will prove to be a major publication in the field of drama and performance studies. The book is published by Tulika Books, a leading New Delhi-based publisher.
