The formation of identity is primarily depends upon how it is represented or produced which demands a socio-cultural study of identity including other influencing factors mainly political situation. This essay discusses its relation to the artistic expressions and other related issues like the policy for the cultural recognition of minority ethnic groups in Britain and the politics of identity in arts. Furthermore, identity matters because it raises fundamental questions about how individuals fit into the community and the social world and how identity can be seen as the interface between subjective positions and social and cultural situations. The essay includes the comparative study of two theatre organisations- ‘Tara Arts’ and ‘Tamasha’ to discuss the issue of ‘Identity’ with a perception that theatre is more political than other art forms because it plays with words which is the most direct form of expression. Tara Arts’ and ‘Tamasha’ deal with the subjects related to British- Asians people with a focus on the South Asian sensibilities through two different approaches.
