THEATRE

On Wings of Song!

Strains of memories…

Aruna Sunderlal came to Jagriti Farm sometime in the 80s along with her husband Raj. A friend wanted Arundhati and me to welcome the newly arrived pair to Bangalore.

To our great surprise, Aruna eased into song and filled our home with the most beautiful operatic mezzo soprano that I have ever heard!

We have since met her off and on. Once on a visit to Madras (Chennai) where we stayed at the same hotel, we shared a chortling, chuckling evening that swiftly swung into a beautiful late night. We remember it all so well still…. 

Aruna knows Jagriti and I am so glad that we can share those notes drifting aloft, along with many of her admirers who value her memory, even as we celebrate the woman — her warmth, vivacity and verve.

The East West concert is at JAGRITI on 24th & 25th Feb at 8pm.

The Polish Hefi Jazz Quartet on the 24th and the BSM Chamber Orchestra is on the 25th  Feb .

January 1, 2019: A landmark moment for Jagriti. . Rebecca Spurgeon appointed as Artistic Director of Jagriti . Arundhati and Jagdish Raja, Founders of Jagriti, announced at the 8th birthday celebration on Sunday, 13 January that Rebecca Spurgeon has taken over as Artistic Director from Arundhati Raja. . On the handing over, @arundhatiraja said, "Rebecca has been with Jagriti from its inception. Having worked closely with both Jagdish and I for eight years, she has an understanding of Jagriti's vision but more importantly she has a finger on the pulse of the changing face of the performing arts nationally and globally. We are confident that she will take Jagriti forward into the next decade, as a vibrant and aspirational performance space." . @rebecca.spurgeon is currently Executive Producer at JAGRITI and heads the Theatre Arts Programme that offers training in Drama and prepares candidates for the Trinity College London assessments in Drama/Performance Arts and Communication Skills.
It's that time between Christmas and New Years, when we're not really sure what day it is. So we at Jagriti have decided to make merry, when the sun shines . . . . . #throwback #team #igers #potd #theatre #theatrelife #actorlife #theatre #theatrekid #theatrelife #backstage #wine #celebrate
