Janhavi Shivalkar – Indian / American

Janhavi Shivalkar is an Indian-American artist from Atlanta. They are soon to be graduating from East 15 Acting School with an MFA in Acting.  They have been performing since they were young, starting with singing then finding their way to theatre when they were 15, and since then they’ve explored many different aspects of theatre including design, stage management and most recently, writing.
