In 2018 she worked as dramaturg and co-director with John Britton on an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” performed by the Second Year students at National School of Drama, Delhi. In the same year she directed a Devised piece called “The Two-Headed Lore” which explores the universe of folklore and fairy tales through the lens of gender.

Manjari’s work is dedicated to exploring the incongruous, fragmentary, disruptive, off-key and awkward in Theatre and live performance. She is interested in the co-existence of different forms, patterns, languages of movement and speech, and in creating possibilities for intersections, and parallels. Gender, sexuality and memory have been subjects that she has been particularly preoccupied with in her work.
