Ranganika, Island of Dance is a joyous, colourful and uplifting show by a talented and exuberant young troupe of Sri Lankan dancers and drummers.
Part of the World Festival at the beautiful St George’s West, Ranganika is made up of a number of traditional & contemporary pieces, featuring beautiful dancing and costumes, striking masks, pounding drums and – in the finale – a vivid and exciting portrayal of traditional village life in Sri Lanka.
The obvious enthusiasm and talent of the youthful cast are hard to resist, and Ranganika is a great example of the kind of performance The World Festival specialises in: one which gives you a rare and privileged glimpse into another culture’s music, tradition and heritage.
Ranganika, Island of Dance runs until 30th August at St George’s West (not Mondays). £10 (£8 concession, £5 child)
