NANDA, the four-man multicultural performance group based in Port Townsend, is coming back to Seattle this week to kick off their West Coast tour of “The Jacket” at the Broadway Performance Hall from Friday, Oct. 5 through Sunday, Oct. 7.
NANDA has performed in Seattle for over eight years at festivals, such as Bumbershoot and the Moisture Festival, in addition to appearing internationally in Canada and Mexico.
They first debuted their feature-length theatre production of “The Jacket” last fall to a Seattle audience and have spent the past year refreshing and refining the show.
“Seattle is our metropolitan hub. It’s a home for us!” said NANDA manager Daniel Milholland. “We are excited to be both kicking off and closing our first major tour in Seattle. This tour has given us the opportunity and incentive to reach out to an extensive network of friends, businesses, groups, and organizations throughout the West Coast.”
“The Jacket” is an action-adventure movie developed for the stage, integrating juggling, acrobatics, dance, and music, as well as a comedy-driven form of stage combat NANDA deems “kung-faux.”
The show also features completely original music and sound. The story follows four men as they search for the legendary jacket, which grants its wearer martial arts prowess. (end)
