Dastangoi at Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2010

Dastangoi will feature as part of the Ranga Shankara Theatre Festival 2010 in Bangalore. The focus this year is on folk and calssical theatre. We'll be reciting a brand new tale of Mussavir Jadoo, a mighty sorcerer, grandson of Lord Samari, a painter, whom Afrasiyab summons to decimate renegade sorcerers and Aiyyaars. Sheikh Usman and Rana P Senger will also perform a tale.

Our performance is slated at 7.30pm at the Ranga Shankara Theatre on Wednesday, October 27, 2010. For more details please visit the Ranga Shankara site.

Thanks and warm regards,
