Postcard: Shantipur, West Bengal, India | Daniel A. Kelin, II

I was invited to visit India by the Rangapeeth Theatre Company of Shantipur along the Ganges river.  I am training the acting company in theatre-in-education strategies and techniques during the day and devising an original play with them in the evenings. They are breaking new ground, as arts integration is still very new in this country.
