Imagine. Inspire. Innovate.

Because all the world’s a stage.

An intimate space for the Arts

What lingers much after an event is its experience – and the performance space shapes this experience, making the whole greater than a sum of its parts. Courtyard Koota was designed with this awareness to offer a bespoke, intimate space for a theatre, music, or dance production, a book launch, film screening, talk, or seminar. With its acoustically treated auditorium that seats 80 people and warm and casual break-out spaces for informal interaction, Courtyard Koota serves varied events and user groups.

We are located in the Good Earth Malhar ecovillage, Kengeri, 1.5 kms off Mysore Road (near Kengeri Metro station). The neighborhood is a mix of residences and institutions, with the Rajarajeswari Medical College and ACS Engineering College nearby.

Break-out spaces

We have 3 break-out spaces – each with its own energy and configuration suited to specific gatherings.

The Lounge

The entry to Courtyard Koota is casual and serves as a break out for both the auditorium as well as the library. It can be arranged as an exhibition space, for art installations or simply as a gathering spot between other activities.

The Courtyard

Flanked by a pergola, this semi-covered courtyard is perfect for small group discussions and for hands-on or messy workshops. It is also the place used to serve refreshments.

The Garden

An L-shaped strip of greenery wrapping around the south eastern side of Koota, with a Gulmohar tree offering shade, it can seat 25-30 people, arranged around tables for 4. The Garden is ideal for outdoor sessions, lunch and tea breaks, and quiet discussions.

Koota curates and hosts programs, and is also available on hire for private programs and corporate gatherings.
