Notes on Chai is a performance piece by Mumbai-based actor Jyoti Dogra. It features a collection of thoughtful and entertaining snippets of everyday conversations, interwoven with abstract sound explorations that attempt to relocate our relationship with the mundane.

If you’ve been on our database for long and are familiar with our events, you know that most of them are free and open to the public. We love showcasing our grantees! That said, from time to time, we need your help to continue doing what we do. So if you love our work, please consider supporting it. We have created a page on the crowdfunding website through which we are raising funds for this performance.

About Jyoti Dogra
Jyoti is a Mumbai-based actor who has been working in film, television and theatre. Over the years her theatre practice has moved increasingly towards making devised pieces which are not script-based, but use the self as a starting point. Jyoti has been training and working with techniques and acting processes which originally belong in the tradition of
Grotowski's Laboratory Theatre.

Between 2007-2010, she devised, directed and performed a solo performance piece called The Doorway for which she received support from IFA. The work was a result of working with techniques and acting tools in the Grotowski tradition, and was performed across India to critical acclaim.

She has worked as an actor-teacher with the National School of Drama’s Theatre In Education Company. Some of the eminent theatre directors she has worked with are B. Prassanna, B.V. Karanth, Maya Rao, Barry John, Kanhai Lal, and Rehaan Engineer.
