Connections 2022: The Ramayana Reset

The Ramayana Reset is about Zara, a young teenage woman who has a decision to make: to like or not to like the latest Instagram post by her friendship group; a post about the new girl, who happens to be Zara’s best friend from primary school. It’s a dilemma and all she has to help her decide is a book. However, this is no ordinary book, it is the Ramayana, the epic story of Sita and Ram which is a traditional South Asian story, fundamental to the Hindu faith, dating back to two and a half thousand years ago.

This is an epic adventure story featuring gods, demons, queens, sorcery, a giant half-monkey half-man taller than the tallest mountain and a ten-headed evil tyrant. This is a piece of dance drama, using movement inspired by the award-winning and internationally renowned choreographer Hofesh Shechter. This is a BIG story that fills the stage with action – there are fires, battles, trials and weapons powerful enough to end the universe. But most importantly of all there is love (and loyalty)?
