Little Cloud Series

'A Scene from Maya Bazaar'

Ghatotkacha, the son of Bhima and Hidimba in the Indian epic, 'Mahabharata', is renowned for his bravery, courage, and skill. Listen to this story of Ghatotkacha in true company theatre style while also saying "hi!" to the characters!

A family theatre group that goes back many generations, Sri Venkateswara Surabhi Theatre is one of the most renowned company theatre troupes across the world. With a repertory of plays based in Hindu mythology and Puranas, this travelling troupe takes their plays across the country, including performing at internationally-recognized festivals such as the Bharat Rang Mahotsav and Bahuroopi, among others. The 6th-generation director, Surabhi Jayachandra Varma, who currently leads the troupe, is a recipient of the prestigious Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar Award, 2016. 

Ranga Shankara AHA!'s "Little Cloud", our signature storytelling programme, is back with Series 3, and this time, 13 storytellers come together to perform 14 stories for children aged 4 and above. These stories are a delightful mix of 6 languages (Kannada, English, Tamil, Hindi, Marathi, and Telugu) and the classical Indian tradition of Kutiyattam - the perfect holiday gift for those young of age and young of heart!

Ranga Shankara AHA!'s Little Cloud Series 1 and 2 are available on Ranga Shankara's YouTube channel and Facebook page.

Ranga Shankara AHA!'s Little Cloud Series 3 - Sri Venkateswara Surabhi Theatre (Telugu)

"The Elephant's Nose"

Why does the elephant have such a long nose? What's the story behind the elephant's nose? Find out from Pallavi's "Doddappa" (Uncle)!

 A multi-talented artiste, MD Pallavi is an actor, theatre producer, script-writer, director and dubbing artist, and before everything, a singer with an enchanting voice and rich contribution to music. She has won several laurels for music and theatre. A Ranga Shankara regular, you'll find that she can spin a story just as well as she can sing. 

The importance and relevance of stories remain unchanged through the years; it is the way we move forward. It is with this aim and the extraordinary circumstances we find ourselves in that made us take our signature storytelling programme, "Little Cloud" (under AHA! - Theatre for Children) onto a digital platform. All the videos were shot during the COVID-19 lockdown with just phone cameras! 

As our Artistic Advisor, Arundhati Nag, puts it, "Today, more than ever before, as we look into the way we have conducted our lives and the kind of world we are going to bequeath to the little ones, we need to share with them stories. Stories that will enlarge their sense of  self-sufficiency, respect for others, sense of justice, sharing, caring and many more ways to negotiate and shape the different world ahead."
