Established in 2014, Leogirl Productions (www.leogirl.in) is a unique theatre production house that focuses on bringing thought-provoking,engaging drama to pan-asian audiences. We seek to create awareness and induce change through “edutainment” in the areas of gender diversity and inclusion, women empowerment, generational diversity at work, life after retirement, the institution of marriage and even, sexual harassment. In only 2 years, we have performed 19 shows across Mumbai, Pune and Delhi for organisations such as Mahindra Group, Citibank, Johnson & Johnson, Reliance Infrastructure, SBI Bank and several others at their cultural events. Our plays have performed to audiences ranging from 60- 1500 people.
An important aspect of our vision is also to bring quality classic and contemporary theatre to the youth of the country. This, either by endorsing original, amateur work or by adapting the existing work of the greats. We hold several public performances a year as well, to encourage the spirit of experimentation amongst amateur artists.
Our group was founded by Priyanka Banerjee who holds an International Baccalaureate Diploma in Theatre Arts. She gave up her admission to the prestigious Tisch School of the Arts, New York University to pursue the success of this initiative here. To check out her article on the utility of theatre for training:http://theleadershipreview.org/features/theatre-an-effective-medium-for-communication-and-reflection/
All of our cast and crew are trained professionals with no less than five years of experience in working for the stage, having graduated from top institutions such as National School of Drama, Delhi, FTII, Pune and Theatre Professionals, Mumbai.
Our distinctive edge truly comes from our scripts. Each of these are based in arduous research conducted by our playwright, Dr. Sujaya Banerjee who has over 22 years of experience in HR, Learning and Organisational Development. She holds a Doctorate in OD and Performance Management. Both forums founded by her, The L& OD Roundtable (lnodroundtable.com) and the WLFA (wlfa.in) are strong collaborators with Leogirl, showcasing our work several times a year.
