    Theatre Beyond Borders

    Adil Hussain, well-known Indian stage, television and film actor from Assam in conversation with Kishalay Bhattacherjee


    South Asia and South East Asia between themselves comprise two of the most populous regions of the world. The region is fractious and studies on it are primarily driven by disasters and conflict. India’s Northeast is one such area until not long back marginal to Indian history, that has been caught in the throes of imperial expansion, nationalism, partition, isolation and dependence in the 20th century. Second in the series organised in collaboration with the National Foundation for India (NFI) and curated by journalist and author, Kishalay Bhattacharjee, hopes to shed light on the people and places that are caught in these larger forces and bridge at least some gaps in understanding between and within the two regions
