Watch out for the Grand Comedy Musical Theater Play on 25th May 2012 at Karachi Arts Council. The story of the play revolves around AVANTI, a place where wandering souls find contentment. Similar is the story of Khwahish whose soul tells her that she is destined to perform her beloved art of Dance. Her mentor encourages her and both set out toward accomplishing this incredible feat until the townsfolk start looking down upon them and the place they call their sanctuary. Bereaved and troubled Khwahish is forced to let go and wander to faraway lands and give up her soul search; until one telephone call rekindles her soul to return... She is thus lured towards her destiny once again; her AVANTI.
Adapted from the a Brazilian and Bollywood screenplay AVANTI is a wonderful mix of music, dance, drama, tragedy and comedy. One seldom finds a play where all genres are intertwined into one theater play. With glittering sets, costumes and even more colorful characters AVANTI is a rollercoaster ride of entertainment. The audience will feel as if they are a part of the town, a part of the coliseum where one can hear the jingling of dancing feet, a part of the story of every character.
AVANTI is the most interactive theater play that audience has come across Pakistan in a long time. With many awards and a tried and tested formula of success in Islamabad and Lahore. AVANTI now arrives in Karachi, and brings with it, music, comedy, and pure ENTERTAINMENT.
