Shubhra is a freelance designer for theatre, textiles & print and works between the UK and India.  She works primarily with design for set, costume and performance, and larger-than-life Puppetry that draws from a range of traditional forms, such as Rod and Japanese Bunraku. 

Shubhra has designed for a variety of performance forms from contemporary dance to promenade puppetry and mainstream theatre.



" I'm always on the lookout for projects that push boundaries. My pet project and hopefully a life-long one is my little company the Tirasila Theatre Practice. My designs tend to be tactile and organic, and I believe strongly in the concept of a universal aesthetic and in the symbiotic processes that create performance..."
