The Old Cottonians’ Association is delighted to present Yasmina Reza’s “Art”, directed and performed entirely by the old boys of Bishop Cotton Boys’ School!

“Art” is a classic Yasmina Reza powerhouse that brings into sharp focus the chinks in the friendship of three friends – Marc, Serge and Yvan over a piece of art. Set in Paris, it mixes levity with drama over an obscenely expensive painting bought by Serge, which he sees as exquisite and tries to get his friends to see that way too, with bewildering results for all.

Our production of “Art” is directed by PreetamKoilpillai (Class of 1990), one of Bangalore’s best known theatre directors, and features the following Old Cottonians:

KartikGanapathy (Class of 1991) as ‘Marc’

AbhijitMadhwaraj (Class of 2001) as ‘Serge’

Chris Avinash (Class of 1992) as ‘Yvan’



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.
