The Abhishek Banerji

Abhishek Banerji

Abhishek is a recipient of Swadeshi India Runway Presents “India’s Superstar Award” for Theatre & Drama. He is the founder of The Epiphany Arts Foundation that aims to foster performance arts as a facilitative catalyst in the journey of being, believing and becoming for both – the artiste and the audience, the performer and the patron, the ‘stager’ and the ‘spectator’ through the cohesive power of storytelling and the embodied experience of experimental theatre. It is a laboratory of thought, feeling and reflection on the amorphous, abstract and the organic nature of human experience unbridled and untarnished by the rigmarole of the mechanistic mundane.
