"Open Cast" is of people displaced and how it affects them and their newly forged relationships with strange people and places. What do the displaced lose? Self Identity and Anonymity or Freedom? What are their problems? Language, Food or being an Outsider? It's not just the people but their culture which also has to suffer the wrench. "Open Cast" is two parallel stories: one of new arrivals in the affluent capital city of Delhi looking for a better life; the other of people forced to endure evacuation from the coal-mining town of Dhanbad.

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.
