P.D. Satish Chandra
His experience in performing arts dates back to his college days when he played an active role in theatre. Slowly his interest grew into passion and he was into mainline theatre stream with his group Fourth Corner. His stand-up comedy act was revisited and he started acting in mainstream amateur theatre. He was part of the founding team of Ranga Shankara till the first year of its operations. His love for teaching started with his first job at NMKRV College for Women and still continues with Frames where he teaches theatre to aspiring actors.

A combination of his enthusiasm for performing arts and his flair for writing has resulted in PD penning many articles, scripts and poems. He had been reviewing theatre for The Times of India and continues to contribute articles related to performing arts to leading publications.  

With a Masters in Mass Communications, he has been actively working with his company Fourth Corner to provide communication solutions to his clients. He has also handled media relations and corporate communications before his passion took him full time to performing arts.
