Our spoken word theatre show Kalagora is half-way through its Edinburgh Fringe run, and has picked up a five-star review from Broadway Baby.

“This play is stunning in its simplicity and endeavour. A beautifully-worded monologue about the clash of civilisations, the changing sands of time and one man’s place in it all. Kalagora is a thoroughly original, ingenious one-man production embodying the art forms and human diversity of the contemporary age. […] the most mesmerising play I have had the pleasure of seeing” (Broadway Baby)

“a one-man tour–de-force […] very intense and energising hour, and the way it teemed with energy and images made me think of Salman Rushdie’s work. A rewarding window onto a variety of worlds.” (ScotsGay)

Kalagora is a hymn to cities, to their richness, their colour, their noise, sprawl and energy, and to the process of cultural merging, mixing and melting that categorises the urban experience. […] Bose’s show captures that heady urban experience, the taxi drivers and the rough sleepers, the shifting skies and the glitter of glass. […] His voice is resonant and versatile, switching between accents with ease; he’s also an engaging performer, confident and capable of conveying subtle shifts in emotion.” (Exeunt)

Kalagora is at Zoo Roxy, Edinburgh, 5.25pm til 29 August.
