A rare and exotic presentation of Bengali ancient rural theatre incorporating captivating myths, fairy-tales, visceral folk music and dazzling dance in a stunning theatrical setting.


This ancient Bengali opera tells the story of Rahim, a young boy, who is destined to be married to an older girl in order to avoid a fatal curse.


Inspired by the Greek story of Oedipus this gripping Bengali folk ballad explores the conflict between free-will and fatalism, combining traditional Western storytelling with the captivating melodies of Bengali folk music.


A performance guaranteed to transport you to a rural village of Bengal, to lie beneath its traditional storytelling spot; a Banyan tree draped in hundreds of lanterns.
