Dhanendra Kawade, 42
Theatre artiste and director
His children's play, Nal Jal, was the opening play at the La Baracca Theatre festival in Italy in 2019
Dhanendra Kawade's interest in children's theatre began nearly two decades ago, but it was only after he attended a workshop conducted by Italian theatre director Roberto Frabetti in 2013 that he wrote Nal-Jal, the masterpiece that got him international acclaim. The play is a sensory treat, meant to convey the importance of water to young spectators. Hil Mil Kar, Kawade's newest play, is inspired by a fable from the Panchatantra called Mitrasamprapti and is steadily attracting a large audience. The actor conducts workshops across the country, where he offers lessons in performance, set design, lighting and the use of props. He is especially interested in providing guidance and encouragement to other children's theatre enthusiasts.
Recommended by: Choiti Ghosh, creative director of TRAM Arts Trust, says, "In Nal Jal, the magic that Dhanendra creates with water and the way it keeps both children and adults hooked is remarkable. He can effortlessly get the audience to look at the material of the play."
Acting classes, workshops on children's theatre, set design, lighting and stagecraft.
