Anurupa Roy, based in New Delhi, India, believes that puppetry is one of the most powerful tools available for initiating social change. She holds diplomas in puppet theater from the Department of Puppetry at Dramatiska Institut (Institute for Film, Television, Radio and Theatre), Stockholm, Sweden, and also from the Scoula Della Guaratelle in Naples, Italy. In India, she has worked with such eminent puppeteers as Dadi Pudumji and Ranjana Pandey. In Delhi she runs Kat-Katha, a puppet troupe that addresses such issues as gender, conflict resolution, and AIDS awareness.

The Art + Activism series is a joint program of the UCLA Art|Science
