The Song of Mohen Jo Daro

TLISM Festival celebrations continue by marking World Dance Day with a performance of “The Song of Mohen jo Daro” – a ballet conceived and choreographed by Sheema Kermani.

This ballet was premiered in 1992 to rave reviews and great acclaim in the press and media. It has been performed many times to packed halls.

The ballet tells the story of Peelu, a young man and his fiancée Bhairvi who wants to become a dancer. Peelu forbids her to dance and is very angry. His friend Bihag tries to cheer him up and they go down the river Indus and down in ‘Time’ to Mohenjodaro of 2500 B.C.

What happens there and what happens when he returns back to present times?

This is The Song of Mohenjodaro – an exhilarating one and half hour of classical and folk dance, drama and music!

Venue: Arts Council Theatre
Date: 29 and 30th April
Time: 8pm
Duration: 1 hour and 25 mins.

All the admirers of art can attend this performance. Tickets available at Agha’s and are priced at Rs. 500.
