Presented by Promoter Ashwin Segkar in partnership with Brisbane Powerhouse

Be emotionally roller-coastered by a secret Indian performance technique.

Comedian Ashwin Segkar debuts his theatrical comedy, Rasa at Wonderland Festival. Rasa moves you through a swirl of emotions using the power of comedy, sound and storytelling. It takes a technique from the world’s oldest drama manual and applies it to modern performance in a unique and hilarious show.

You’ll move through the primal emotions identified by India’s ancient gurus as being at the heart of human life including wonder, fear, joy and more. The Natyashastra said that all performance needs to evoke ‘Rasa’, a feeling that is vivid and strong in each audience member. While in ancient India this involved the movements of the classical dancer, or the notes and beats of the musician, in Rasa, we take the same wild journey using the artistic tools of our time and place.
