Indo-Canadian Voice: Rohit Chokhani launches “Project SAT” (South Asian Theatre)

By Rattan Mall - June 27, 2017

PRODUCER, director and recipient of the 2017 Jessie Award for Significant Artistic Achievement (Large Theatre), Rohit Chokhani, on Tuesday announced the launch of Project SAT (South Asian Theatre) – an initiative aimed at creating a network for developing, touring, producing, and presenting national and international South Asian theatre projects in Canada.
“With Project SAT, I want to help train and educate the next generation of South Asian artists,” says Chokhani. “It’s important to me to be able to create opportunities and establish a new mainstream for them. This is unlike anything being offered anywhere else in B.C. and Canada.”
Project SAT kicks off in July at the new Jim Green House Studio with free workshops, which will focus on grant writing and how to pitch project ideas to presenters and producers. The Grant Writing workshop is scheduled for July 22 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the Pitch Presentation workshops are scheduled for July 22, 25, 26, and August 1 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Westender : Claiming Space

By Sabrina Furminger- August , 2017

How do you claim space in a sector that has been dominated and defined by white European settler culture for decades?It’s a pressing question when you’re an artist of colour, determined to break through into a mainstream theatre world that doesn’t seem to have space for you, and it’s a question that has risen in volume and frequency in the Vancouver theatre scene over the last several years.

“This doesn’t mean seeing more South Asian stories done in a Eurocentric way.”

–Rohit Chokhani
