Bollywood in Global Dynamics
Honolulu Museum of Art’s Doris Duke Theatre
Once again, we are excited to bring you Bollywood’s glorious “Dream(e)scapes” with resounding rhythms and haunting melodies, with wedding bells and magical lullabies. This year we explore Bollywood as a global phenomenon and present to you those magnificent songs and dances that have captured worldwide audiences and have brought Indian actors and themes, festivals and folk traditions into the global mainstream. We also eagerly include East-West fusion pieces that show you the rewarding process of cross-cultural creative collaboration. As a special feature, you will see two original compositions from A Midsummer Night’s Bollywood Dream – an upcoming UH Manoa Kennedy Theatre production and a wonderful marriage of Shakespeare with Bollywood. As Indian culture seeks global scapes, and the whole world seeks Indian dreams, we bring you to the crossroads of their Dream(e)scapes. For those who know Hindi and Urdu, we bring you to their Dream-e-scapes!!
When: January 18th, 7.00pm
