Spectacular Naya Zamana 21 for National Cultural Centre on Saturday
Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha’s Naya Zamana hits its 21st edition this Saturday August 27 at the National Cultural Centre.
The theatrical adventure titled “Lost in Time” features a superb blend of cutting edge choreography, chart-busting music and superb acting that brings the exciting storyline to life. Naya Zamana 21 encompasses comedy, romance, thrills, spills and a gamut of emotions.
Aryan Masi and Travez Piaralall will take the audience on a unique adventure on stage that will keep them entertained and curious to see how it all turns out in the end. Brand new sets and fabulous costumes by Trishala Persaud add the right touch to every act.
The more than 70 strong cast of dancers and actors, who have been trained at the Dharmic Sanskritik Kendra and are from all across the country, provide the perfect complement to the main cast of Farzaana Khan, Indhira Harry, Nirmala Persaud and Travez Piaralall along with Aryan Masi and Rahul Ravichandran who join the cast from Canada.
Aryan is currently based in India where he is doing short films and TV commercials and making small appearances in Bollywood films. Both Aryan and Guyanese-born Travez received training in acting and graduated from the world famous Anupam Kher’s Actor Prepares Academy in India.
This year, they team up to give our audience a wonderful performance. Rahul Ravichandran of Canada is trained in numerous dance styles including hip-hop, ballet, jazz, Bollywood and the South Indian dance style of Gaana. He has been part of numerous competitions including Canada’s got Talent. In Naya Zamana 21, the audience will get to enjoy Rahul in several avatars.
A must see for all, Naya Zamana continues to lead the way for family entertainment and raise the bar each year in production. Many fans who attend without fail every year always remark on how much it is like looking at a film on stage. We hope this year, persons who have never attended will make “Lost in Time”, a first-time experience and that after a memorable night, they will return year after year.
The production is further enhanced by excellent lighting from Cloud Nine Inc. The Cultural Centre has advised that the air conditioning is fully operational in all parts of the theatre.
The Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha has hosted this production for 20 years and continues to provide a positive platform for young people to develop their skills and talent and express themselves in creative ways. Direction, choreography and script have been done by Dr Vindhya Vasini Persaud.
The Sabha’s recent experience of taking the entire production to New York and receiving rave reviews has brought home forcefully how much Guyana and its youth have to offer to the world. The Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha remains committed to working with youth and encouraging them to explore new avenues on the world stage and at home.
Tickets cost $3500, $3000 and $2000 and are available at Bhagwan’s on Water Street, Red Mango – Robb Street, the National Cultural Centre, all E-Networks locations including Giftland and Mon Repos Malls and the Dharmic Kendra in Prashad Nagar or call 227-6181. The Sabha wishes to thank Digicel, E-Networks, Farfan and Mendes, Fly Jamaica, Ansa McAl and NTN for their generous support for the event.
