Anita Majumdar Bio
Anita is an award-winning actress, playwright and choreographer who is an acting graduate of the National Theatre School of Canada and holds a degree in English, Theatre and South Asian Languages from the University of British Columbia. Dancing for the last nine years, Anita's training originates in Kathak, but she has also studied Bharatnatyam and Odissi. She is also currently the in-house playwright-in-residence with Nightswimming, a company in Toronto dedicated to serving new play development and their creators. Her acting and playwriting credits are many, but most recently her self-written Bollywood musical on the issue of shadism, Same Same But Different, premiered at Theatre Passe Muraille and Alberta Theatre Projects and was nominated for two Betty Mitchell Awards including a nomination for Outstanding New Play. As well, after over a decade of touring her play, Fish Eyes, the completed series of solo shows, The Fish Eyes Trilogy, had its premiere tour across Canada last season and was published (with illustrations) by Playwrights Canada Press in January of this year. Anita is the 2013 recipient of the Governor General Protege Prize in Playwriting under the mentorship of John Murrell.
