Anuja is an actor, writer and director based in Bangalore. She is also the founder of the theatre group Drama Queen, that focusses on personal histories and archives to extend the idea of theatre to create audacious work. The company’s debut show, Lady Anandi was written while she was an artist-in-residence at Art Lab Gnesta, Sweden. In the past, Anuja has worked as a programme officer at India Foundation for the Arts. Through a Sarai grant, she documented the oral narratives of her grandfather, the oldest living make-up artist in India. Her newest project, The Reading Room blurs the boundary between audience and performer, where 10 strangers read personal letters alongside public ones.
