The Hooghly River or the Bhagirathi-Hooghly  is an essential lifeline for the people of West Bengal. It is through this river that the East India Company sailed in to Bengal and established their trade settlement – Calcutta, which later grew up to be one of the greatest cities of the world and capital of the erstwhile British India. Similarly, London’s trade with the continent and the rest of the World steadily increased along the banks of the River Thames. So, it is quite clear that both the rivers have been important trade routes throughout its history.

Now, after all these years, how would it be if we RE – IMAGINED the two rivers in a different context?

This blog post gives a project update from one of our key Indian partners Bangla Natak.
