AVANT THEATRE’S MOKSHA FESTIVAL
The sprawling Indian epic of the Mahabharata will once again take to the stage by way of the Moksha Festival organised by Avant Theatre & Language. Anchoring the festival is the eponymous Moksha trilogy of plays, inspired by characters from the Mahabharata: a warrior, a game master and a dancer. Apart from theatre productions, the line-up includes storytelling, dialogue sessions, and games of dice that audience members can participate in.
