Join us for a thought provoking theatrical journey with Vibhinna Ramdev, as she presents ‘Why English?’. Inspired by personal experiences and interactions, this performance blends physical theatre and spoken word to explore the complexities of language and identity. As Ramdev navigates her challenges as an actor in a predominantly non-English speaking nation, she delves into the significance of language and its impact on opportunities and perceptions.

Through her performance, she invites audiences to experience the nuances of linguistic diversity and its role in our interconnected world.
