Prasanna Ramaswamy is a Kalaimamani and Sangeet Natak Akademi Awardee for theatre, and a documentary film-maker (with six feature-length films, which have been screened at international film festivals)
Her plays Pirappakkum and Vanam Vasappadum, against war and honor killing, were staged with two hundred folk artists – actors, singers, and dancers. Some of her other plays are Ahamum Puramu, , Meendum……Meendum…. (!), Thiraikadalodi (Aham), All too Real Minus Tomorrow’s Children, Jewish Wife, Pennoli, Karna, Oliyudal+Olimozhi+Olippookkal, Surthi, Smrithi, Kriti and Nadhiyin Karunai.

Her productions interlink disparate textual sources such as classic poetry and newspaper reports, and employ music and dance to telling effect.
