We staged a reading of Tom Stoppard’s masterpiece Arcadia to commemorate International Women’s Day on 8th March 2017. With the help of our audience, we raised Rs.130,000.00 for The TEA Project Charity (Kandy). The reading was directed by Tracy Holsinger and featured Mohamed Adamaly, Shanuki de Alwis, Shanaka Amarasinghe, Meth Bandaranaike, Tehani Chitty, Gehan Gunatilleke, Pia Hatch, Lihan Mendis, Dylan Perera, Anushka Senanayake, Arun Welandawe-Prematilleke and Subha Wijesiriwardena.

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….
