Finally, a play for children AND adults by children!!! Janne Teller’s NOTHING is a play about a group of teenagers faced with getting their classmate Pierre Anthon out of the plum tree. Pierre Anthon has just walked out of their classroom declaring to them that "Nothing matters. I have known that for a long time. So nothing is worth doing. I just realized that." Flummoxed by this, they decide to make a Heap of Meaning to show Pierre Anthon he is wrong. Called a modern day Lord of the Flies, this critically acclaimed allegorical tale has been adapted for stage by Kirtana Kumar and performed by Theatre Lab (Youth) for children over 11 and adults alike. Through story telling by children, music, image and drama, NOTHING wrangles with the nuances of being an individual in a world that demands conformity and what the heck constitutes meaning.  


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.
