History

The Jaipur Theatre Festival was established in 2001 by 3m dot bands in the city of Jaipur.

In the year 2012 “Jaipur Theatre Festival” was re-christened as Jairangam (acronym of Jaipur Rang Mahostava).

Jairangam is a community celebration of arts, vibrancy, drama, excitement & beautiful colours of culture. It is a kaleidoscope of music, dance, theatre, literature, street stalls, films, workshops for adult & children, visual arts & heritage walks. Seven joyful days to refresh your mind and soul. It is open to all, generally free of charge.

Jairangam is an initiative of 3M DOT BAND theatre family, which went on floor in 2012. Jairangam in its present form is the biggest theatre festival of the country receiving accolades from the theatre fraternity, appreciation from audiences and ample media attention. Theatre has been the nurturer of some of the most polished actors and yet is not considered main stream entertainment in most parts of the country.

Jairangam is a cross interaction platform between the regional, national and international level of amateurs, performers, actors, directors, story tellers, scriptwriters, technicians, artists, etc. where they exchange their values, expertise, professionalism, learning, experiments, etc. with a wide open relevant world to take their form of art and exposure to the next level as per the global standards. It is also a platform to resurrect, rejuvenate and redefine the aura & importance of performing arts, theatre (rang manch a.k.a rang mandir)and many others, to connect with the classes and masses and to keep them deep rooted within their elements; so that generations can sow and reap the benefits out of the whole endeavour.

Technical department

The Technical Department is responsible for researching, planning and implementing the staging of all productions contracted to appear at the Jairangam Festival. This involves realizing a succession of productions in the Festival.

This requires the co-ordination of plans in different theatre, dance and opera companies each year, ensuring that rehearsal and performance plans are feasible and arranging for the technical personnel and equipment to be sourced, recruited and scheduled. The department also arranges transport of scenery, provision of super-titles, and liaises with the venues to provide all the theatre support services needed by the artists.

The Technical team, which consists of the Head of Technical and Technical Department Administrator, is augmented by five Technical Heads of Department (lighting, audio visual, stage management, staging and sound) immediately before and during the Festival. Up to 50 theatre technicians are employed on a temporary basis for the duration of the International Festival itself.
