The Manganiyar Classroom is one of a kind play. Directed by Roysten Abel, whose 'The Kitchen', 'The Manganiyar Seduction', 'A Hundred Snake Charmers', Girish Karnad's 'Flowers' have scorched the stage around the world, The Manganiyar Classroom is a labour of love.
35 Manganiyar children from many villages around Jaisalmer got together with Roysten Abel and a few senior musicians to create this masterpiece which defines folk music in its purest elements. Everything is spontaneous. Everything is vibrant, resplendent and oh, so natural: the singing, the playing of drums, the act of performing, the way music, mind and body fuse.
It is a rare privilege that The Manganiyar Classroom plays at Ranga Shankara, the country's best theatre space. The no-amplification acoustics at Ranga Shankara will sure make for a surreal experience.
Dates:15th December to 18th December
