Epic in scope, like the Ramayana, the East Indian poem it is derived from, "Om, An Indian Tale of Good and Evil" will be BOXTALES Theatre Company's second original large-scale production debuting October 1-4, 2009 at the historic Lobero Theatre. The Ramayana is one of the most important epic narratives of world literature. Filled with great romance, miraculous births, slaying of demons, abduction and supernatural warfare, it contains teachings of ancient Hindu sages, and is considered fundamental to the cultural consciousness of India. Production will include sacred & Gamelan music, aerial dance, masks, movement and clarity to an epic poem not nearly as well known in the West as it is in the East.
Featuring: Michael Andrews, Jeff Mills & Matthew Tavianini
