Muthukad’s show for Doha Festival
Along with his talented troupe, Gopinath Muthukad is to mesmerize a cosmopolitan crowd at the prestigious Doha Festival organised by the Cultural Ministry of Qatar. The team will be leaving for Doha on 27th. Mr. Muthukad has prepared a brand new format for carrying the spectators to a world of fantasy and fun. For this, equipments weighing 3000kgs have already been sent to Doha by air cargo.
The show deftly garnished with the cultural ethos of India and fascinating threads from the texts of Arabian tales is aptly named as Illusion Arabia. It will be a 120-minute nonstop show of stylish illusions, accompanied by classic elements of theatre. Dance, drama, music and even aspects of film are dexterously applied to make the show an entertainment par excellence. The scenes for this show will be created by way of intelligently exploring entertainment aspects of science and technology. “I have high esteem for the people of Qatar. They have a broad mind where artistes have enough space”, says Mr. Muthukad who was in 2004 presented with the prestigious Humanity Service Award by the Anti Smoking Society of Qatar.
