Shreshth is a writer, director, and performer from Calcutta. They are interested in telling real stories of love, distance, illness, and food through a magical and dreamy lens. In 2018, after graduating from the Headlong Performance Institute, they created and performed in Table on Table on Table, a radio narrative about immigration and queerness set to a modern dance performance in an attic space. This September, they mounted CHEZ VOUS!, a live cooking show shot in strangers’ apartments featured in the 2018 Digital Fringe Festival.
Their Leeway project, Immigrant Kitchen, is an 8-person in-kitchen performance which creates a space of safety and intimacy for queer and other marginalized people to feel welcome, heard, and fed metaphorically, and literally––with a communal Sindhi meal, featuring kookum kadhi, kulcha, and a puffed-rice salad.
