The newly formed Multicultural theatre group called ‘Free Rider’ will present a play called „Ministrel Macaroni“ at the Eigenarten Interkulturelles Festival 2015. The play was written by Sadiq Rahman, an academian and creative artist living in Hamburg.
About the play
Minstrel Macaroni :Two minstrels (Bauls) – a Vaishnava Hindu from Bangladesh and a Sufi Muslim from India, meet accidentally in Hamburg as refugees! Their problems of settling in an unknown country without the knowledge of the language and the law becomes a mirror of the society. The play tackles global issues like terrorism, racism, war etc with a loads of humour and lots of live music. Bauls and their unique music tradition are fast decreasing from the world. UNESCO has thus taken the initiative of including Baul traditions as the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.
