Arpita Dhagat

Presently working as a Cultural Outreach Programmer with LEAF Foundation, Arpita Dhagat is a performer and performance maker, with specialisation in design and theatre techniques from National School of Drama, New Delhi (2010-13).

Arpita, as an artist, is keen about different mediums of art expression and how it changes the equation between the audience and the artist; and the art work itself; and what scope of interaction it may open up - are some of the core questions she has been exploring. She is interested in collaborative interdisciplinary art – through performances. She is also a founder member of Astitva Art Foundation, which aspires to grow as interdisciplinary art school.

In hidden corners of the building, Arpita tries to claim space and converse with it; and in doing so she watches being watched.
