Tales of Birbal - rehearsal images

IMAGES have been released of Simran Kular and Medhavi Patel rehearsing Tales of Birbal. Timeless and treasured fables for children from the Indian sub-continent by Sayan Kent from an original concept by Trina Haldar, the production will visit the Southbank Centre’s Alchemy Festival on May 28 and 29 and Tara Theatre on June 2 and 3, 2017, as part of a UK tour.

Mashi and Bhanji are travelling story-tellers, living hand-to-mouth with just a wooden cart, trinkets they have collected on their travels, and a family of mischievous crows for company. Stopping one day for lunch, they recreate mythical tales of the great Mughal King Akbar and his wise companion, Birbal. How can a man survive a night in a freezing lake? How many crows are there in a kingdom? Only Birbal knows!

Using humour, puppetry, music and the occasional fake beard, Mashi and Bhanji bring to vivid life these famous tales that have been treasured for generations. Suitable for ages 6+.
