Animal tales brought vibrantly to life with wonderous masks, movement and music, based on The Panchatantra – India’s Aesop’s Fables.
Near the foothills of the Himalayas, three orphans open a magical book under a banyan tree. They were told the book wouldn’t give them answers but they’d learn from it, so they stir a pot of milk and watch as three stories of the forest rise from the pages. Stories of headstrong crows, a mongoose who wants a family, and a brave lion come vividly to life.
The first ever stage adaptation of The Panchatantra in the UK, directed by Tara Arts’ Artistic Director Jatinder Verma MBE with design by Claudia Mayer.
