Junoon and CSMVS are coming together to make a regular experience with the performing arts a part of the Museum's annual calendar. We will begin with a pilot of 4 months, running from December 2019 to March 2020.
We hope to build on this pilot programme to bring more live engagements to young audiences in the city, truly democratising the arts in one of the city’s premier cultural institutions.
The CSMVS children's Museum opened in April 2019 as a creative cultural lab for young people, a place for exploring the arts and the environment. We have partnered with Junoon Theatre to offer a unique segment on theatre appreciation which will put our children back in touch with the rich performing art traditions of India. It was my long standing wish to bring the museum and theatre together so that young kids get a 360 degree experience of the Indian Arts.
