Ali J is a powerful urgent new play about the search for identity, the need for belonging, the uneasy position at the wrong end of inclusivity and about being Muslim in today’s India. Ali J and Evam made history when the play became the first theatre production from India to perform a full run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Kirtana Kumar, festival director, writes:
I am very proud to say that this one is a national first on many counts.
- Jagriti Theatre is hosting a symposium dedicated to the subject of Dramaturgy that brings together theatre-makers across generation, genre and language, to deliberate on dramaturgical approaches for the contemporary Indian stage
- Many years ago Mahesh Elkunchwar asked “Why is theatre in the villages alone to be considered indigenous and not theatre in the cities? An Indian who gets a western education is also part of the Indian reality; an Indian theatre that is influenced by Western theatre – especially after such a long history of exchange – is part of our experience.” We are committed to expanding the idea of Indian theatre to strongly recognise English as a working language and to emphasise diversity, multi-linguality and urbanity
- We are working with a framework that is cognisant of the past, welcoming of the future and most importantly, frames theatre-makers as agents provocateur of social change
Theatre has always shown the “other” way. So too, in initiating discourse. This symposium hails Plato’s Symposium; essentially a drinking party! A place for colleagues and peers to meet, debate and discuss a central issue in an informal and convivial atmosphere. There are talks by some fabulous souls, conversations between people on two ends of a spectrum, opportunities for questions.
Participate, engage, be a writer in the story of Indian theatre.
-All events will take place in the auditorium at Jagriti.
-Please register by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with ‘Symposium’ in the subject line. Please indicate which day/s or specific event/s you will be attending.
-If you’d like a boxed lunch, a nominal charge of Rs. 100 per day will be levied. You can pay this on the first day that you attend. Please request for a meal only if you’re sure of your attendance. It will be a pity if food were wasted.
-Tea/Coffee will be served complimentary to everyone before the start of the day and at the end of the day, each day.

Take It Or Leave It, is a satire on corruption, providing, in the words of the playwright, “90 minutes of humous entertainment”. It deals with the day-to-day shortcomings of authorities to provide basic civic amenities to its citizens, which is their basic right. The play deals with corruption at different levels in our society and the public’s peaceful revolution against the corrupt authorities.

Mujras, guns and gangsters. Three gangsters find themselves in murky territory. Between work and love, which thrills them more? Come watch Godfrey, Sarayu and Wazir tangle and untangle themselves.

What do you think would happen if four puppets came to life in an empty auditorium and performed Romeo and Juliet – only this time they’re doing their own way”?
