Adventure into the forests of the Sundarbans, the land between India and Bangladesh, the home of the Royal Bengal Tigers and Honey Bees, as Mashi takes you on a playful journey into the jungle to discover how the tigers and honey bees struggle for survival.
The Sundarbans is one of the largest and most beautiful mangrove forests in the world shared by both India and Bangladesh, and is home to 260 bird species such as eagles and owls, 400 Royal Bengal tigers, the Indian python and of course (our favourite), Honey Bees! The Sunderban, where Stripey Honey… is very yummy is based, was declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Trina Halder, the director, says that she wants to “invite children and their families to another world, deep in the jungle, where borders are undefined”, and where the Tigers and Bees live with people together in close proximity.
Mashi brings a new play to young audiences of adventure and fun with music by award-winning composer Arun Ghosh (who will be at Rush Hour Jam beforehand in our Z-cafe) song, dance and puppetry, exploring the lives of some of our most precious but endangered species, who unite to save their homes.
On Friday 8 March we welcome Stripey Honey… is very yummy to Z-arts, get your tickets right here!
