The Manganiyar Seduction
From darkness to dazzling, show-stopping light: the White Light Festival welcomes back The Manganiyar Seduction, a musical dance of delirium that had its U.S. premiere in our inaugural season and returned in 2013 due to popular demand. The Manganiyars, nomadic Sufi Muslims from Northwest India, incorporate Hindu deities into their devotional songs. Conceived by Indian director Roysten Abel, this seduction of the spirit begins quietly with a solitary desert fiddle but builds to an ecstatic eruption of sound, light, and color as the Manganiyar community takes audiences into and beyond their world.
“I found it impossible to sit still, so buoyant and compelling were the work’s lively rhythmic currents.” – New York Times “Visually and musically stunning masterpiece.” – Arts Review Australia
