Dr. Farley Richmond is regarded as one of the leading experts on traditional Indian performing arts and theatre in the western world. Throughout his career, Dr. Richmond has explored the theatrical arts of India, and South Asia, and has directed and staged many productions of Indian plays in USA. Dr. Richmond is the DIrector and Professor of the Center for Asian Studies at the University of Georgia in Athens, Georgia. Recently he was in New Jersey to direct Girish Karnad’s play Hayavadana at the South Asian Theatre Festival hosted by Epic Actor’s Workshop. I grabbed this opportunity and invited him to join us for a chat at the EBC Drama Club where he discussed about various aspects of Indian theatre and his love for India.
