G5A Warehouse Performance Grant


1. Which space at the G5A warehouse will the performance be showcased?

Depending on the nature of the performance, Team G5A and the artist can mutually decide the best space to showcase the work. The G5A Warehouse consists of four viable spaces: India’s first Black Box Theatre, the Study (a space for smaller, intimate occasions), the Terrace (a one-of-a-kind open air space), and PORT Kitchen & Bar (our restaurant that can host more informal programs and performances that can also cater to F&B requirements).

Ages 18 years and above.

You can only submit one application consisting of one piece or work for the Season.
