More informationThe Sanjhi Indian Association has organised a unique event at the King’s School in Chester to launch a season of art and films.
The event will be held in the School’s Vanbrugh Theatre on Thursday, 12 April and includes a performance from one of India’s best known dance troupes.
They will perform the story of Chitrangada. Princess Chitrangada was brought up as a man to inherit the throne of Manipur and falls in love with a warrior prince. Believing that he would not fall in love with her unless she were more beautiful, Chitrangada asks the God of Love, to transform her into an attractive woman for a year to woo him. In a true tale of “girl power” Chitrangada eventually comes to realise that her real power and potential as a woman is through her duty to her people.
The production is based on the work of Nobel prize winner Rabindranath Tagore who has been described as the ‘Shakespeare of India.’ Choreographer Ranjana Gauhar is taking the production to venues all over the country. The narration will be in English and dinner is included after the performance.
