Since 2017 ThinkArts has produced a number of performances for young audiences in collaboration with artists around the world. This is the first collaboration of ThinkArts with Jhalapala, a theatre company based in Kolkata aiming at making theatre activity a source of creative joy.
It was the perfect Christmas vacation for Joy. That is until Akash moved in next door and became very popular even with Raja who was Joy’s best friend. This, of course, made Akash the top member in Joy’s Enemy List. Luckily Granny had a surefire way to get rid of enemies; Enemy Pudding! Joy was thrilled ……. but one of the conditions for the recipe to work was that he would have to spend one entire day with his arch-enemy and that too, without any fighting. Enemy Pudding serves up a sweet lesson in the difficulties and ultimate rewards of making new friends.
Enemy Pudding has been performed in English as well as in Bengali (as Shatrudaman Payesh) and has witnessed consistent full houses by children who have come all the way from various schools and NGOs. The response has been overwhelming, to say the least.
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.

Jagriti is owned and operated by the not-for-profit ART Foundation, a registered charitable trust.
