Nalandaway continues to enthrall Chennai kids with their cultural fest Art, Arattai, Aarpattam 2010. Today(July 24th), at the Subba Rao Concert Hall, a Korean theater group Tuido, performed the Tale of Haruk for the first time in India.
The background music for the musical came from creative sources! The dancers used empty bottles, old water cans, sellotape, and sticks to produce wonderful sounds and even the screens act! It's no wonder that the play won several awards at the 2002 Seoul Children Theatre awards.
The Tale of Haruk is an interesting story. An elderly couple are very lonely. The old man reads an outdated newspaper and the old lady knits and unknits.So, they pray to a tree god and the tree blesses them with a kid Haruk. But the couples must feed Haruk only with dew and no other food. So, the couple gets up early in the morning to collect dew drops for Haruk.
The audience gave a standing ovation at the end of the Korean musical of Haruk!
