Ramlila by Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra
If there is one Ramlila to see- my recommendation would be this one. For years, the Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra has been taking their audience on an enchanting journey through their dance drama - Ramlila, the story of Ram.
The epic is beautifully brought out through the production, which effortlessly strikes a balance between projecting the true philosophy of the Ramayan and maintaining the entertainment quotient. Innovations in the production over the years include a special slide projection in English and stylized iconography of the costumes and sets, that moves away from the stereotypical visuals.
The production is a little over 2 hours long and very young children may find it difficult to sit through the duration. Even at 6, you may need to help them with the story, but they are sure to be mesmerized by the music, dance, costumes and sets. Older children, especially those with an inclination towards performing arts will soon catch on to the story by themselves and are likely to enjoy the performance thoroughly.
Price: Rs.100, Rs.300 and Rs.500/- available at Kendra
