Swapnasandhani (Bengali: Shopnoshondhānī (help·info)) is a Bengali theater group from Kolkata. The group was founded on May 29, 1992. Swapnasandhani has been marked by the acting and directorial of Kaushik Sen. With its consistently high quality of work, the group has indeed carved a niche for itself.
