Synopsis – Beyond the Bubble
In the distant future, humankind lives in isolated bubbles that dot the surface of the planet. In the Cloud Monastery, a group of young warrior-monks are instructed by their guides to reconstruct life in the early 21st century and try to understand what went wrong. Why did New Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru all come apart at the seams? Was it just one disaster after the next? What was life really like back then, in the big cities? And will all the training and studying of ancient history help with a more immediate problem – how to defend the planet from being overrun by cybernetic rabbits?
Beyond the Bubble is a fun-filled, mischievous and action packed story for all ages. It addresses the burning issues of our times – attitudes towards gender in our country, unplanned urbanisation and its effect on the environment, and the way we respond to disaster. Tongue in cheek, Beyond the Bubble provokes the next generation to tackle the problems the present generation is busy doing nothing about.
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. 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.
