Paraya, 2014, originally uploaded by deshan10.

Mind Adventures’ Paraya goes on the boards again; this time, as part of the arts festival, Colomboscope. Tickets are now sold out on both nights. I really hope you got yours; this is an important, bold offering from contemporary Sri Lankan theatre. Directed by Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke. The simultaneous narratives (there are nine) take place in an alternate reality Sri Lankan dystopia where the government has subjugated its citizenry by means of a thought-suppressing drug. The Hotel Rio, burned during the 1983 race riots forms the setting of the play. More information here: www.yamu.lk/event/standard-chartered-colomboscope-2014-2….
