Woods treat everyone with equality. It provides the shelter, safety and food without discriminating any race. From ancient times, human started their learning going to “TopoBon” in the woods and also at the end of their social responsibilities return to the woods for “banoprostho” It is the woods which today also heal us from our pains and teach us how to stay in harmony.

Today’s global connected village diversity comes as blessings, but kids are growing with more individualistic way within their own digital bubble. We judge people with so many parameters but forget to accept them as mirror of our own reflections. So its time to take our kids back to the woods where they can stand together holding each other hands and learn from the ancient Guru.

Togetherness and empathy heals our pain faster than any medicine.

History Of EPIC

It has been an amazing journey. At the very onset, we would like to thank all of you, staunch supporters and friends of Epic Actors’ Workshop and Choir, for your undying support and encouragement in all these years. The group was originally formed by Dr Dipan Ray in New York, 1988. Over the years, Epic broadened its mission to showcase and underscore the importance of South Asian theater, mostly Bangla Theater, performance and (the) arts within the community and in the larger context of mainstream American culture. Although Epic’s focus has been to provide a platform for Bangla Theater in the United States, it has also tried to be a conduit that connects the emerging trends and thoughts of Bangla theater in Kolkata with the Indian diasporas in the US. In this process, Epic espouses to support all intercultural and multicultural endeavors.
