kanishk pandey
(he/him/his) 



is a joyous exile who attempts to live, to err, to fall, to triumph, to recreate life out of life. He is a writer, artist, and scholar who believes that art must be in constant conflict with society to express the love all beings deserve. His work interrogates this through the belief that consciousness can only exist through dialogue and interaction, and that every living creature shares an unspoken connection. He follows these concepts in everything he does, be it plays, short stories, films, or essays. As long as he gets to connect with you.

His work has been supported by organizations such as The Lark, SPACE on Ryder Farm, Clubbed Thumb, Sanguine Theater, and Boomerang Theatre, and has been honored by institutions such as Synecdoche Works, O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, Austin Film Festival, and New York Stage and Film.
