Chanakya Mukherjee is a graduate from the University of Calgary (2015), Chanakya is a recent graft onto the Toronto theatre community. His move to Toronto was spurred by a desire to better his understanding of his craft, and to find his grounding as an artist of colour. Since his move he’s been a part of multiple projects in Toronto that have helped him towards realising those goals, and he feels fortunate for the same. He is a recipient of Marilyn Perkins Annual Award in Music, Art & Drama (2014), and more recently won the Hamilton Fringe Monologue Slam (2018).
