“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.

“Art” to be staged by Cult at Alliance Francaise

cult presents

ART

BY

YASMINA REZA

Art, a French play written by Yasmina Reza, adapted in English, by Christopher Hampton, is a play, that revolves around three diverse and minimalist products of human nature. Three characters, aesthetes in their own right, questioning their individual prejudices against each other.

Serge, a modernist, a puritan, but an afterthought of delusion. Marc, characterized by the epitome of self-acclaim and classicist snobbery and Ivan, an oblivious leaf, which flows in whichever direction the wind blows.

The three friends collide subtly into each others’ perspective and push each other into an overwhelmed sense of egoistic urge towards moral self defense, bringing out the extremes of human nature in the most sublime of ways. The simplistic portrayal of a relationship severed at the seams, encompassing Art as its supposed to be, universal and conflicting.

natural players , differential lighting and apt music makes art a worth while watch .( all this plus a not so creative tribute to Michael jackson)

Venue: alliance francaise, Bangalore

Date: 18th september 2009 [friday]

For immediate release

“Citizen Josh at Ranga Shankara”

Josh Kornbluth will be presenting his hilarious and provocative one-man show at Ranga Shankara on Wed, Aug 19th at 7:30 PM. A Jonathan Reinis Production, ‘Citizen Josh’is written and performed by Josh Kornbluth in collaboration with Arena’s Associate Artistic Director David Dower. In this production, Kornbluth examines and engages the fundamentals of democracy through his entertaining and moving autobiographical stories.

In 1980, Josh met every requirement to graduate from Princeton except one — he didn’t do his “senior thesis.” Now, over a quarter-century later, he tracks down his old advisor, a brilliant political theorist named Sheldon Wolin. Josh asks Wolin to help him complete his long-overdue thesis, on the subject of democracy. Josh’s explorations of political theory soon bring him into the “real” political world — as he finds himself at the center of a number of grassroots protests involving his local playground, state education funding, and even global warming. Including a pivotal encounter with former U.S. Vice-President Al Gore, this tale blends recent electoral history with stories from the Civil Rights movement and academia.

Mr. Josh Kornbluth is the author and performer of the celebrated monologues Love & Taxes, Ben Franklin: Unplugged and Citizen Josh, among others. From 2006 to 2008 he hosted the weekly KQED-TV program “The Josh Kornbluth Show,” interviewing such figures as Annie Leibovitz, Alan Alda, Helen Mirren and Michael Tilson.

The tickets are priced at Rs.200 each. For any further details please contact Ranga Shankara at 26493982 or visit our website www.rangashankara.org
