Jagriti is a hub for the performance and visual arts in Whitefield, Bangalore. A 200-seat auditorium built around a full-thrust stage, it is fully equipped to cater to both artistes and audience. The main stage is designed for intimate performances, with adjoining spaces for informal lectures and gatherings, and an attached restaurant.
Founded by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.
A small team of dedicated art makers, lead by its Artistic Director, Arundhati Raja, supports its performers and collaborates with national and international artists. Jagriti has a strong training and education arm with a vibrant Kids & Youth wing.
Jagriti works in the English Language as it is spoken and used in India. Using contemporary theatre as a base, traditional Indian theatre forms are often incorporated into productions, bringing together actors, musicians, singers, choreographers and dancers.
The artistic endeavour of the team is to ensure a long lasting relationship with its audience and so its community.
Jagriti means Awakening in Sanskrit.
