Love is impossible,
Life a beautiful mistake.
And it don’t mean a thing
  – Sweet Durga Durga –
If it ain’t got that swing!

Story-wizzard Iwan Kushka is joined by everybody’s favourite swing jazz band ‘Skedaddle’ for his rambunctious rendition of an epic Indian tale in which two boys meet one girl and lose their hearts (and heads) in the process. An experience of rhapsodic scale, humour, and Eastern wisdom, interlaced with an up-beat jazzy musical score.

While the story, music and imagery used in this performance are aimed at an adult audience, there’s nothing in it which is inherently unsuitable for any age group. An earlier warning about ‘nudity’ was somewhat tongue-in-cheek exaggeration by one of the performers – there will be no naked bodies on the stage!
