Leon’s World Centre for Holistic Learning and Development has been staging meaningful theatre for over a year. At the beginning of the New Year, they are continuing on this journey of enriching young minds with stories that get them thinking and introspecting. The unusual manner of presentation of the plays, whether enacted by talented actors or with the use of puppets has been a source of great entertainment for the kids and their parents alike.
This time around, Leon’s World is associating with Ethiros Theatre to stage The Adventures of Aladdin – A Shadow Play. The presentation of the play will be unlike any other seen on the Leon’s World stage as the actors will form enchanting shapes and silhouettes on the screen as their enact the different scenes from the play – shadow play indeed.
The storyline revolves around a little girl who gets immersed in a book about Aladdin and the adventures he shares with his Genie. As she is reading, the characters in her book suddenly come alive and she finds herself experiencing the story as it enfolds. She follows Aladdin and his Genie across several continents and countries only to realize the shocking truth that the end of the world is imminent because of the actions of humans. She begs Aladdin to take the help of the Genie to save the earth, but then realizes that each one of us has the power to take small steps towards saving our planet. The Genie dwells in us all, we just need to motivate ourselves to do something to save this planet that we call home.
The dance and music of the play simply cannot be missed. The use of shadow play to enact the story is an amazingly innovative way of presentation that will leave the audience mesmerized.
