Yes. We are interested in the idea of people, especially younger people in the university, using the space around the Café counter in the basement at Sarai for small and informal performances. These can be - chamber theatre pieces, contemporary modern dance works involving a few performers and a modest audience, music (not at a high volume), open mike, poetry readings, salons, etc. The space is available subject to our schedule, and subject to how the proposed performance speaks to Sarai’s concerns and interests. We cannot support any such projects with funds. Write to firstname.lastname@example.org giving details of what you want to do and when you want it scheduled in order to schedule a discussion about the feasibility of your proposal.
Sarai’s public access area has several boards on which non-commercial information can be posted.
