Theatreact, in association with Clowns Without Borders (Sweden) presents 'Panchatantra.'

From grandma's moral lessons through folklore dating 3000 years in time on the greedy crocodiles and the trusting monkey, to the jackal who changed colours, literally and metaphorically, leading to his own doom.

Panchatantra is a devised physical comedy through mime techniques and live Indian folk music.

Indian earthiness is brought to life by four actors and two musicians using spoken word and music with a dholak and harmonium for company without any sets or props. All you need to bring is your imagination and an appetite for fables.
