Live performing arts and specifically theatre has always held my fascination. I have always made use of the various facets of theatre like monologues in my storytelling session as I believe the dramatic touch expands a wide horizon of imagination for the members of the audience. I have also been able to hone my skills as a thespian by working with some of the leading theatre houses of Chennai like Crea Shakti and Madras Players. I have also had the chance to interact with theatre practitioners across on the importance of compelling storytelling as an art form.
