The Elephant Wrestler squares off with India’s contradictions
Diwali Fest continues with its presentation of The Elephant Wrestler (November 1 to 5), an acclaimed production from New Zealand’s Indian Ink Theatre Company.
Loosely based on a traditional Indian fairy tale, the award-winning show sees actor Jacob Rajan playing a poor chai wallah, or tea seller, whose life is dramatically altered at a busy railway station one day when he witnesses a young girl being abandoned. Alongside multi-instrumentalist Adam Ogle, Rajan channels close to 20 characters as he tries to tackle the conundrums of life, love, and tragedy amid the contradictions of modern India.
