Arts Week with Delhi Public School, Agra

At Junoon, we believe that young people must regularly have access to artists and their arts practices, to seep in the spirit of the arts. Such exposure can be transformative and life-changing.

We have curated a week-long, immersive experience, the Arts at Play Week that combines exposure, learning and practice to open out the horizons of the mind for young people, while simultaneously building value for rigour, reflection, effort and determination. The students experience the power of teamwork and collaboration, and the joys of free creative expression. They learn how to transform working with what you have into magic and delight and that it is in their power to create an interesting life for themselves.

It is to this end that we are delighted to offer this magical experience to the primary and middle school students of Delhi Public School, Agra.

Katkatha is a travelling Puppet Theatre, which performs all over the country and world. The word "Katkatha" is an amalgam of two words "Kat" or wood and derived from the word "Katputli" or puppets and "Katha" meaning stories thus coming together to mean 'Puppets and Stories'. Katkatha focuses on presenting visual narratives with non-living material, figure or doll at the centre of it. At the heart of Katkatha remains one vision- to promote puppet theatre by exploring its various forms, pushing its boundaries and by popularizing it among audiences and bringing more people into this art form.
