A powerful politician's son gains power.  A young girl becomes an activist. Two lives that run in parallel. What happens when they finally intertwine?

Alipha, written by Poile Sengupta is a mesmerising play of gender and social inequality. Through a backdrop of a multitude of human emotions, two parallel stories evolve. Two lives. Two people who pass each other like ships in the night. We watch a young girl grow into adulthood as the stories unfold and begin to mesh together like pieces in a jigsaw puzzle.  

Written in 2001, Poile Sengupta's riveting and hard hitting play remains as devastating in its relevance as it was seventeen years ago.

 

Jagriti

Jagriti is a Performance Arts space dedicated to Theatre, Music, Dance and Comedy. Founded in 2011 by Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, the space has hosted several productions from India and around the world. A 200-seat theatre, 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- 'The Fat Chef'. Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.

The Rooftop - above the main auditorium is an open-to-sky space with a staging area that can accommodate about 50 people. A raised and walled off platform can work as a perfect area for puppet theatre. The Rooftop has a restroom and a pantry. 

The Terrace - alongside the auditorium, the Terrace can accommodate about 20 people as an informal gathering area.

Lumbini - extending out from the foyer, Lumbini has a stage and an open-to-sky terraced space for about 80 people.
