A native of Kolkata, India, Jashodhara Sen is a PhD student in Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a 2018-2019 Community-based Research Fellow. She earned her MA in Theatre Arts and MA in Theatre (Directing Emphasis) from Mumbai University and Oklahoma State University respectively. Jashodhara’s academic work focuses on the folk theatre tradition from West Bengal, India known as Jatra and Jatra’s contribution in asserting and preserving communal and participatory performance spaces. As a community-based artist and applied theatre practitioner, Jashodhara’s goal is to create a democratic and encouraging space for the communities within and beyond academia. Currently, Jashodhara is working on a digital storytelling platform for South Asian immigrant women, titled “Leaving Home, Finding Home” that redefines audience-participant relationships in alternative theatrical spaces. Other than theatre, she enjoys spending time with her fur-babies and doing everything outdoors.
