Event Description : THEATRE "Phenomenal Maya: Celebrating Maya Angelou" English Play. 

In the 86 years of her life, poet Maya Angelou lived through the gamut of being a black woman in America, from times of oppression, poverty and discrimination to being hailed as America's foremost poet. Among her millions of admirers worldwide were Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey. In her extraordinary career as an artist she was a singer, dancer, actress, film-maker, memoirist, raconteur, party-thrower and chef. She recited her poem On The Pulse of the Morning at the inauguration ceremony of US President Bill Clinton. She was the favourite poet of Barack and Michelle Obama.

Phenomenal Maya takes us on a journey through her life, with poetry, stories, music - even food!

Venerable theatre star Jalabala Vaidya, an exquisite performer of poetry, brings alive some of Maya Angelou's best known poems, including Still I Rise, Phenomenal Woman and Arkansas, while Sunit Tandon recounts vignettes of her life, including passages from I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. Singing and acting star Nisa Shetty sings songs evocative of  Maya's poetry - including Summertime, Natural Woman and Caged Bird.


US Ambassador to Bangladesh, Marcia Bernicat makes a guest appearance, reciting from On The Pulse of the Morning, while actor Kanika Aurora springs a culinary surprise. An unusual and uplifting performance - not to be missed!

Cast : Jalabala Vaidya, Nisa Shetty, Sunit Tandon
