Ranga Shankara Jun 2008 Schedule 

Apart from the fantastic line-up of plays, we are bringing back our "Other Voices" program in June. On May 31 (Sat) and Jun 1 (Sun), Claire Denieul, a theatre practitioner from France stages August Strindberg's "The Stronger" at 9:30 PM. Be tuned to announcements of a few more "Other Voices" shows in June.
Just to recap, the "Other Voices" program introduced in Ranga Shankara's Fest '07 brings theatre into an intimate performing space and an audience of not more than 25. Revathi Menon and Rehaan Engineer performed during Fest '07 that gave the "Other Voices" program a solid start. Tickets for the "Other Voices" shows are available 30 minutes before the show at Ranga Shankara and the duration of the show is less than 30 minutes.
Praise for "The Stronger"
Strindberg creates an episode of incredible, poetic power – a snapshot of life so intense, so powerful, that it rivals Beckett at his best. Like a Kafka short story, "The Stronger" is rich in allegory and lends itself to many layers of interpretation. One can easily spend hours thinking about it after the show ends. It is moreover, a powerful play, one that makes a deep impression, and leaves one with the illusion that one has travelled far and seen much, even though the entire thing is actually incredibly short.
See you at RS then!-- Theatre Alive!
