After four houseful shows in July 2016, they are back again with renewed vigor, more content and a grander presentation of the play Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam.
Munshi Premchand believed that literature is the trustworthy knowledge that lights our paths when we lose our way, and litterateurs are the torch-bearers of this truth. He was the first Hindi author to introduce social realism in his writings. He believed in social evolution, and his ideal, was equal opportunities for all.
Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam is an anthology of his short stories and stage adaptations of the same, along with a glimpse into his life events.
Kafan - A dark comedy and a heart-wrenching story. It deals with the survival instincts of the dirt poor.
Sadgati - Premchand deals with the social exploitation of the untouchables, their abject poverty and their dehumanization by the upper class. A dark truth which keeps re-surfacing even in today's India...
Panch Parmeshwar- A story of responsible behavior, when you are put in a position of power.
Poos Ki Raat- A story of a poor farmer who struggles to ward off the bitter cold of winter nights, with only his dog for company...
Literature according to Premchand, is a powerful means of educating public opinion. His greatness lies in the fact that his writings embody social purpose and social criticism rather than mere entertainment.
Kalayan salutes Premchand and serves up for you, Ek Shaam Premchand Ke Naam.
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.
