“Zapperdockel and Wock”:Children’s play by AHA! at Ranga Shankara

“Zapperdockel and the Wock” – Shows on Sep 15 and 16, ‘09

Ranga Shankara is proud to bring back “Zapperdockel and the Wock” for five year olds and above! The play premiered at AHA! Fest ’09 and was welcomed enthusiastically by both children and adults.

The play is directed by Wally and Paul Schmidt of Salz und Pfeffer, Nuremburg, Germany. The music has been composed by Ganesh and Kumaresh and the puppets are by Anurupa Roy of Kat-katha, New Delhi.

Practical application of the Laws of Physics, a beautiful story and a brilliant presentation hold children and adults in a thrall. The play received rousing receptions in Mysore and Chennai too, when it travelled for the AHA! Fest.

Synopsis:

Zapperdockel is yellow, tiny, unsure and a crybaby. But that’s the way he is! Wock is blue, fat and grumpy. But that’s the way he is! Is there still a chance that both get along with each other? “The Zapperdockel and the Wock” is the touching story of the beginning of a friendship between two creatures that couldn’t be more different from each other.

The primary objective of this event is to create awareness about Asha’s efforts and kick start our Team Asha “Training” programs.

The entire route is scenic with lush greenery and beautiful streams lacing the landscape of Valley school. The terrain will be a mix of road, soft trail and even stretches of rugged rock trails with some steep uphills. Beginners or first timers are advised to walk the uphills cautiously.

Who can run?
Anyone above the age of 10 can participate in the run. We will have children from multiple Asha supported efforts running along with us on June 20th.

Prizes
The event’s objective is to go beyond the usual ‘need for speed’ and make this a wholesome event. The event is about bringing together adults and children from varying backgrounds with running as a unifying factor. Prizes would be awarded for different aspects of running together rather than just speed. There will be interesting categories for prizes and every participant will get a T-shirt as memorabilia.
