About Sudip

Sudip is a Sydney-based emerging director who takes inspiration from the beauty in everyday human life. His practices revolve around the complexity of human psychology with a nostalgic, vintage aesthetic.

Sudip is an individual with unique lived experiences fashioned from two very distinct cultural contexts, moulding him into a person who exhibits the balance between Eastern and Western cultures. He seeks to create art that is challenging in both intricacy of realism and heightened artistic spectacle.

Sudip is a full-time student of MFA Directing at NIDA. As a part of the curriculum Sudip is currently co-writing and directing an original play ‘Leela’ for Festival of Emerging Artist which will be held in December 2022. Other NIDA Productions I have worked on this year include:

How I leant to Drive – Assistant Director (written by Paula Vogel, adapted, and directed by Tasnim Hussian)
I am what I am cabaret act – Director, choreographer, and production design (written by Shirley Bassey)
The Lady of the Larkspur Lotion – Director and production design (written by Tennessee William)
During 2022, Sudip also directed a music video for Perth-based Indi pop singer and song writer Darcie Haven, for her Triple J award winning song I Wanna Be.

Sudip has also worked as an actor in several professional productions such as Michael Gow’s 2016 production of The Pearl Fishers (Opera Australia) and Gale Edwards’ 2019 production of Salome (Opera Australia).
