The young actors’ group of the Nationaltheater Mannheim and the Ranga Shankara Theatre in Bangalore are collaborating on a theatre project that highlights the different worlds of Mannheim and Bangalore – two cities which have been shaped by industrial migration. In their collaborative project, both theatres present the challenges of co-existence and potential cultural conflicts on stage. The theatre partnership will conclude with a co-production of "Boy with a Suitcase", a modern adaptation of Sinbad by the renowned British author Mike Kenny. The German-Indian ensemble and directing team will depict the exciting journey of the boy Naz across continents and oceans on his way to Europe. Prior to the co-production, the Indian and German ensembles will hold guest performances and participate in joint workshops in order to acquaint themselves with the working methods and techniques of the other ensemble.
