The Workers’ Bible is a collection of stories, inspired by Italian Folkfore and refashioned to create absurd and unique characters – a classical pig who wants wings, Adam and eve who begin life in a pea pod, a dung bettle who outsmarts an eagle, an eagle who is charmed into laying her eggs in God’s lap and a God who is not quite able to keep pace.
In all this ridiculous absurdity, these characters present to us the most primal of human behaviour -desire, ambition, vengeance and power play and crafty ways to get around the system.
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. 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.
