The Story of Ram 2021 is an immersive, outdoor performing arts experience.
Talking monkeys, shape-shifting deer, heroes and demons galore! Mandala’s take on the Ramayana emerges as a multidimensional theatre that nests in contemporary culture and mythology alike. Artists share slices of rich tradition steeped in the epic, including dance, music and puppetry.
Permeating the arts throughout South and Southeast Asia, the tale of Ram, his wife Sita, and his brother Lakshman exiled in the forest – at odds with the brilliant king Ravana – has seen myriads of interpretations over the centuries.
The Story of Ram weaves together cultures from India, Indonesia, Thailand and more. Together, we hope to create new resonance and understanding.
This project is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts. The Story of Ram is supported by the City of Naperville Special Events and Cultural Amenities Program, The DuPage Foundation and Illinois Arts Council Agency.
