Vijay Padaki is a theatre educator and management professional based in Bangalore. He joined Bangalore Little Theatre in 1960, the year of its inception, and later served the company in many capacities – as an actor, director, trainer, writer, designer and administrator, including two stints each as Secretary and President. Bangalore Little Theatre Foundation also requested Vijay to provide the leadership to a newly created Academy of Theatre Arts in its formative years. The Academy is developing a long term programme of work in Theatre Education.
As well as being active in the theatre for fifty-five years, Vijay has also been a management professional for over forty five-years. He is the Founder-Director of The P&P Group, a management resource centre that has programmes of research, consulting and training in the areas of Organization and Institutional Development. A good part of The P&P Group’s work is devoted to the effectiveness of large development programmes.
More recently, the Ministry of Culture invited Vijay to initiate a programme of Arts and Heritage Management in India.
Vijay has written over 40 original plays. In addition, he has adapted or translated several other play scripts. Seagull Books has published a volume of two Gujarati plays, which he translated. In 1993, Vijay won the award for the best contemporary play script instituted by The Hindu for the play Credit Titles.
