What is freedom? How free is a woman? Is she free to live on her own terms, to travel on her own terms, to be herself, by herself? In RIP a woman seeks her path, within her restricted life, tied to her husband, by first convincing her husband to take her with him on his work related travel. Travelling is her dream. Through her travel she grows and frees herself. And, this is her celebration!
An interactive solo, RIP is a woman’s personal, and political, narration full of satire and humor. It takes the audience into a journey, also their own, of emotions, opinions and questioning, of everyday and taken for granted conventionality of women’s lives, in individual, social, cultural and political milieus.

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.
