Arthi Chandra is a Vancouver based director, writer, and theatre maker. Her practice is rooted in devising text-based new works, and adaptations of contemporary and classical plays. Her work focuses on queerness, joy, and intimacy. Recent works include Done/Undone at Bard on the Beach, and Passenger Seat, a pop-rock theatre concert all about love. She has performed in Vancouver and New York. Arthi also teaches devising and directing (Toronto Metropolitan University, VanArts, Bard on the Beach). She is a graduate of the theatre performance stream from Simon Fraser University’s School for the Contemporary Arts.
Arthi is sharing her favourite cocktail recipe with you (drink responsibly): shake 2oz oaken gin with 1oz crème de cassis, strain over ice. Top with tonic water and 2-3 dashes cardamom bitters.
Arthi acknowledges her work, life, and play all occur on the unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples.
