The Niloufer Sagar Festival of New Theatrical Work

The Niloufer Sagar Festival of New Theatrical Work is a groundbreaking festival presented by the G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture and the Drama Schools Foundation Mumbai. The inaugural festival is a testament to the visionary support of esteemed art patron Sangita Jindal, whose commitment to the arts in India is unwavering. Set to debut at the G5A Foundation for Contemporary Culture, this cultural milestone will feature a carefully curated selection of new plays developed through the Niloufer Sagar Alumni Grant (NSAPG). Established in honour of the late Niloufer Sagar, a revered figure in theatre and live arts production, on the wishes of her family, this grant serves as a testament to her lasting legacy. Administered by the Drama School Foundation Mumbai (DSFM), the grant has already facilitated the successful production of 12 productions.

The Niloufer Sagar Festival of New Theatrical Work aims not only to celebrate the innovative works of emerging theatre talents but also to honour the legacy of Niloufer, whose influence in the world of theatre continues to inspire new generations.
