One of the world’s most original and mesmerising live performance experiences is headed for Brisbane in 2018
by Roysten Abel
A Can & Abel Theatres Production
The Manganiyar Seduction is a visually and musically stunning masterpiece, where 40 musicians from three generations of Manganiyars perform in a 36-windowed ‘jewel box’, with the songs slowly building to giddying heights. This is the music of the Manganiyars, a caste of desert musicians from the heart of the Thar Desert in Rajasthan. Inspired by the visual hedonism of Amsterdam’s red light district, prepare to be mesmerised and uplifted.
Described as “rapturous ... jaw-dropping ... buoyant ... compelling ...tranquil” by The New York Times, the show has received long-held standing ovations all over the world, from Salzburg and Vienna, to New York, Singapore, Washington, Paris and Hong Kong.
“The effect is like that of a gospel mass or slow building rave: a joyous communal experience of the seductive power of Music” The Irish Independent
“I came out of this concert wanting to reach for my mobile phone and text ‘OMG’ to everyone I knew” Victoria Laurie, ABC Perth
