One of the oldest surviving folk tales in the world retold through dance

One of the oldest surviving folk tales in the world retold through dance, music and animation, featuring an award winning team of artists from Thailand and the UK. 

British Composer-Producer Sebastian Reynolds and Neon Dance Director-Choreographer Adrienne Hart collaborate with renowned Thai dance artist Pichet Klunchun to retell the story of Mahajanaka Jataka.

Bringing together east and western dance and music performance traditions, this enchanting production fuses ancient and modern with animated scenes from Sun and Moon Studios. 

There are two ticket options for each date, one includes a pre-show talk by Sarah Shaw of Oxford University, the other is for the performance only.
