Lincoln Center Presents: White Light Festival - The Manganiyar Seduction
Thursday, October 31, 2013
7:30pm | Rose Theater
The Manganiyars, a formerly nomadic caste from the desert of Northwest India, are Sufi Muslims who incorporate Hindu deities into their devotional songs. The White Light Festival welcomes back The Manganiyar Seduction, a musical dance of delirium that had its U.S. premiere in our inaugural season. Conceived by Indian director Roysten Abel, this seduction of the spirit begins quietly with a solitary desert fiddle, but builds to an ecstatic eruption of sound, light, and color, as the Manganiyar community takes audiences into and beyond their world.
