Directing

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 examines ways in which identities of race, gender, class, and queerness intersect with one another, and how people and ideas are shaped by systems and institutions. Recent works include directing Done/Undone - a feature film by Kate Besworth at Bard on the Beach, and Passenger Seat - a theatre concert centering on queerness and being seventeen. She has performed in Vancouver and New York. Arthi currently works for Theatre Replacement. She is a graduate of the theatre performance stream from Simon Fraser University‚Äôs School for the Contemporary Arts.
