Kicking off their second tour of the United States at the Cullen Performance Hall, University of Houston, Viva Kultura is sure to bring the magic. After over twenty years of international performances, with their diverse cast from over twenty different countries, they promise 'to inspire and entertain'. The two-hour special will encompass a variety of their cultural extravaganzas. From martial arts, through dance, live music and theatre productions, the 7th of September will be a night to remember.
The jewel of the night, the Foundation’s latest production, will be a modern take on an ancient tale. From the campfires of Rajasthan to the puppet theaters of Bali, The Ramayan is an epic echoed across south-east Asia. Sung and performed by generations, it has now been brought to the stage in a medium never before seen. Exploring the epic through the eyes of the hero's brother Lakshman, artists perform, wordless, whilst the storyteller engulfs the audience within the plights of the tale, via the staggering vocabulary of his saxophone.
