Anderooni Open Mic is an open space for women. It is a non-judgmental space where women free to perform, engage in conversation and build enriching connections. We see the Open Mic as a gathering of women who come together and support each other in their creative journeys. At this facilitated event we aim to move beyond the format of a regular open mic to create an intimate setting and a stage that is not intimidating, but instead, is warm and welcoming.
Anderooni was born when we recognized a pressing need for nurturing creative spaces for women in the city. We host regular women-only open mics in Bangalore and Chennai. Our open mics have had the pleasure of holding space for many first-time performers. It is always a joy to run into these performers later at different venues; immediately creating a sense of camaraderie. We are slowly growing into a community that supports its people through their creative adventures.
Join us as audience or on the stage to perform poetry, comedy, music, drama, dance, storytelling, art installations or any other modes of expression. Whether you are a first time performer or a seasoned artist, this is a space for you to let go, experiment with your craft and have fun.
*This is a women-only event (including the audience) **Please try to avoid bringing children as this can be distracting to performers. We understand that this is not always possible, so we'll keep some cookies on hand, just in case.
