Experimental and Experiential Programmes
In an attempt to introduce audiences to innovative musical productions, several experiential productions have been invited to Navras. Dhamaal celebrates the percussion traditions of India; Thari The Loom is inspired by the sari; Partition: Stories of Separation is an experiential performance using music, theatre, film, design and art to retell the stories of separation; and Rajasthan Roots Caravan, which features more than 30 artists on stage exploring the rich cultural heritage of Rajasthan's folklore, is an audio visual extravaganza presenting a contemporary and explosive package of song, dance and instruments.

Meet the Artist
In addition to the performance programme there will be several ‘Meet the Artist’ sessions where artists will be available to talk to the public and media a day after their performance.

Pooja Sood, Director General of JKK said, “JKK is proud to present yet again, a variety of nationally acclaimed performances in music, dance and theatre to audiences in Jaipur. If Navras means to have new experiences, then it is our endeavour that the audiences in Jaipur enrich themselves in experiencing theatre dance and music in new and diverse ways. We are also proud to showcase a commissioned theatre production by JKK.”
