A classic Indian tale retold through dance, storytelling and konnakol (vocal percussion) for young thinking minds.


Vishnu, one of India’s shape-shifting Supergods, wakes up after sleeping for thousands of years to find a greedy demon called No-Knowledge has taken earth’s most precious treasures for himself. Enlisting the help of King Manu to save the essentials for life, Vishnu changes his form into something quite unexpected!


In this interactive performance, boys and girls are invited to join King Manu’s adventure in a new production to enchant all children aged 5+.


This new work headlined The Place’s Something Happening for Kids Festival 2016 .
