Hello, my name is
Konrad Suder Chatterjee
I believe in exploring the (re)generative role of art, mainly in writing and performative arts, in preventing and mitigating the impact of armed conflict in conflict and post-conflict environments.
At no point do I sympathise with any form of racism, phobias related to identities, discrimination or prejudice.
I am an Artist in Residence at the Development Department at SOAS, University of London, UK and a recent alumnus of the MSc programme in Violence, Conflict and Development at SOAS, London as well. I have trained in physical theatre with “Gardzienice Theatre” and “Song of the Goat Theatre”. I was cast in pre-pandemic theatre performances in London and Cambridge, UK which were focusing on love and resilience at the time of war. Most recently, I wrote, co-directed and produced an award winning theatre play which I am translating into a feature film.
Currently, I am also writing a utopian play about animal rights and seeking eco-justice. I am an active member of London Writers’ Salon where I develop my writing muscle. I am a community-powered writer, podcast producer, poet, theatre maker, actor and performer, classics teacher, movement lover, meditator and aspiring yogin.
I specialise in creating and facilitating safe spaces for creative unfiltered expression called Open Mic as well as producing a podcast series called ArtNoHurt where I explore the role of creativity in mitigating the impact of and preventing armed conflict.
I am currently writing a film script exploring colonial unchilding in the form of child military incarceration and torture.
