Theatriculate Fellowship

Application open for second edition of Theatriculate Fellowship of 2023.

If you have an idea or a concept that has the potential to become a scripted theatre production, then Adishakti’s Theatriculate Fellowship is for you.

“Anything or everything could be theatre.”

– Veenapani Chawla, our founder

  Rightly so, Adishakti believes in rewriting norms of what theatre could be.

As an institution working in the field of theatre since 1981, constantly involved in research, creation and dissemination of various performance methodologies, Adishakti understands the journey and the hurdles one must cross for an idea to manifest into a theatre production. 

The Theatriculate Fellowship instituted by Adishakti Laboratory for Theatre Art Research is a yearly fellowship program for aspiring performers. The fellowship started in 2022 as part of celebrating Adishakti’s 40 years of existence. As part of the celebrations, through this fellowship, we want to enable you to translate your ideas into reality, onstage. Adishakti’s Theatriculate Fellowship will thematically be looking at solo work creation


The selection will be solely based on the originality of the idea and the creative possibilities of the concept submitted. Shortlisted candidates will have two rounds of online(Zoom) interviews with the selection committee of Adishakti. For the second round applicants must be willing to demonstrate/perform a snippet of the evolving idea based on the concept note.

Send your applications to theatriculatebyadishakti@gmail.com
