Sananda Chatterjee has worked with New Zealand's largest South Asian theatre company – Prayas – since 2005. In 2020, she expanded her repertoire with Yatra, coming on board as an Ensemble Director and Associate Producer.
Outside Prayas, she collaborated with Sarita Das on their performance piece Perfect Shade in the Auckland Pride Festival (2020) and opened Proudly Asian Theatre’s Fresh Off the Page initiative by directing XoX (first as an audio play in May and then on stage in October 2020). She first worked with Auckland Theatre Company in 2019 as Assistant Director for A Fine Balance with Ahi Karunaharan, for their ground-breaking collaboration with Prayas. She is very excited to be learning from Colin McColl as part of the Engine Room initiative for the MiNDFOOD season of Two Ladies!
