“What I think on theatre is we can give some experience through characters. I don’t know drama gives any message. However, life is there in every plays. We portray contemporary community lives and people in dramas.”
“I don’t concentrate on any particular theme alone. Each and every play is entirely different.
“Contemporary issues are always living in dramas. I can’t portray a fourteenth century life while I live in this time.However; there are some pieces of theatrics arts that stay timeless.”
Drama has a language through words, sounds and body actions. Sometimes body movements are the vehicles of drama theme. Once you understand the play in its real sense there is no language barrier. Meanwhile, there are some expressions that are uniquely digested in local language.
Dr.Chaudhri got her training in theatre arts from National School of Drama and after that she is a dedicated artist with direction and teaching.
She is a teaching faculty at the department of Indian theatre art, Punjab University since 1990.
