ZARIWALLAS’ THREADS: Created as a world premiere for the prestigious 34.Medunarodni Djecji Festival [International Children’s Festival], Sibenik, Croatia, ZARIWALLAS’ THREADS, Embroidered Tales from India, is based on the theme of friendship and played, not just to civilians, but to refugees as well. With lively action, gorgeous costuming, energetic characterizations which have become a trademark of Sun.Ergos, a bright little mouse, the Sun, the Wind, the Cloud, the Mountain, a zariwalla [a gold and silver embroiderer], the Lion, the Camel, the Fox, Crow and Leopard, kings and dyers, cats and sparrows and rabbits bound off the stage into the audience’s hearts and, sometimes, literally into their laps! This performance rings with a joy that produces laughter and glee.
