About the speaker

Dr. S. Krishna Kumar is Founder-Artistic Director of Masquerade - the Chennai based English theatre production company, and works extensively in the field of youth, teen and tween theatre. He conducts actor training workshops as well as facilitates theatre productions, both through his youth & children’s banner - Masquerade Youth Theatre (MYT) & The Bear & Beanbag Children’s Theatre -  as well as in schools. He began his theatre career in the 1980s and has been a theatre artist for more than 3 decades. He is also an independent debate coach and MUN advisor to schools, in which capacity he has been serving the Chennai student community since 2009. Currently, since the last 4 years, he serves in the international pool of Judges with the International Public Policy Forum (IPPF), that organises global policy debates in conjunction with the New York University and Brewer Foundation, United States. A complete Madrasvaasi that he is, unlike other Chennai-based theatre companies, he does not travel with his shows outside of Chennai, for the fear of missing Chennai. His love for his city is as deep-rooted as the famous Aalamaram at Theosophical Society. This has led him to develop a Boardgame - The Great Madras Trip. He’s now working on The GMT 2 and plans to launch it on 2020 Madras Day.
