Anu at the Filibuster Project , Somerset House, September 2017

“I am always in the middle, in the middle of two cultures, in the middle of two disciplines: the arts and the sciences and in the middle of a conservative professional wonderful world and a persistent and lively imagination.


I believe that stories hold the key to sharing human needs and ultimately can shape and heal the wounds and even scars of society.


I am and have always been interested in making work for theatre. I am interested in the auditorium as a unifying present for all partakers where new worlds can be explored.


My work is rooted in ways of stimulating multicultural dialogue , I am interested in dialogues that transcend perception.


My projects now involve unifying my interests.”
