Hanuman is considered by some to be the oldest superhero in the world! Born to the Wind God ‘Vayu’, he has the body of a monkey but embodies eternal strength and youth.
This brand new show is a piece of dance theatre tailored for children aged 5 to 11 years. It illustrates Hanuman’s life through movement and tells the folktale of his involvement in the story of Rama and Sita.
