I haven't heard it in a long time...Barbra Streisand or Ella Fitzgerald leading one to the heights and the high notes...

"No more hunger and thirst,

But first

Be a person who needs people,

People who need people

Are the luckiest people in the world!"

We at Jagriti are blessed. We have many people who have melded into the team that greets, serves, attends to the needs of our directors, managers, performers and backstage crew.

Binod Bihari Mishra

Binod, was a current tester wielding son of the man who executed the wiring contract in the total project. While Mishra Saab has returned home to Odisha, Binod - now a husband and a father - is our man on the light controls.

Together, Binod and Manoj are responsible for lifting our work above the normal, and making ‘setting up’ stress-free. Over the five years, the duo - now titled Banjo and Manjo - has given light and sound to scores of stage productions, with performers raising their arm in salutation of their commitment. Of course, they both are our resident Repairs and Maintenance experts on anything, electrical, civil, structural and artistic!

J. Raj Manoj Kumar

Manoj left his home town Vellore and came to Bangalore in 1993 and came to us six months after we opened and has been with us since. Besides providing the sound effects, Manoj also engineers sound recordings and audio and video editing.

Lakshmi

The band of the 3 ladies is a very integral part of the Jagriti family. From housekeeping to maintaining the theatre guest house, making sure visiting companies are well taken care of, and providing much needed cups of tea to rehearsals and the team. There isn’t a day when their love for the Theatre is diminished.

Lakshmi, Bharathi and Sudha are all from the local community.

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.
