Laxmi is a playback theatre performer and an improviser for some years now. She is interested in the mirror that spontaneous choices on stage and off stage can be – reflecting our own biases, leanings, rigidities and flow back to us. She is a performer, trainer, and an overall nerd when it comes to spontaneous theatre. She has formed connections and learnt from across the world through the internet, especially during the pandemic times, and is passionate about building communities. Her home group is City Lamps Playback Theatre and The Adamant Eves. She enjoys puns and believes that embodied entry points into scene-work is for everyone.
