THE MANGANIYAR CLASSROOM By Roysten Abel
From the creator of the international sensation The Manganiyar Seduction, acclaimed theatre director Roysten Abel brings to Penang, Malaysia, the Asian premiere of The Manganiyar Classroom.
35 Manganiyar village children as young as eight, spontaneously sing and dance their boredom away, taunting and rebelling against their teachers. Watching the children’s buoyant performance will get the audiences reminiscing about their schooling days.
Its performance at the Melbourne Recital Centre, has been described as another exuberant and uplifting music-theatre experience to shine a spotlight on the Manganiyar musical tradition. This time the younger members of this tribal community are the stars of the high energy show.
Roysten Abel is known for the combination of theatre and folk music in his works. His shows are more than to just entertain, but also to raise awareness on the folk legacy’s verge on extinction because of India’s rapid modernisation.
A must-watch this year, particularly if you enjoyed The Manganiyar Seduction in GTF 2012 and The Kitchen in GTF 2014.
