“Bandara” by Aravind Enrique Adyanthaya presented in collaboration with Pangea World Theater as part of the Latino Asian Fusion Series. “Bandara” explores Puerto Rican and Indian cultures through the significance of the monkey motif. In New York, a young pathologist of mixed heritage unsuccessfully tries to find emotional connections in the city. In his research and life he begins to discover regressions to a primal state. In India, a young woman has lost a baby that was left under her charge in an orphanage. During the investigation of the disappearance, she remembers a past life in the Caribbean where she was a man whose pregnant wife was haunted by human-monkey creatures. In the theatre, these and other stories come together through a trans-media staging that immerses the audience in an experience of presence and hallucination.
