Kumbi Kathawa (Ant Story) was conceived by Anjalika, Chitrasena and Vajira’s daughter. She was inspired by a Russian children's story. The ballet is choreographed and directed by Anjalika and Mahesh, who has also designed the amazing costumes and stage sets. As with any production from the Chitrasena Kalayathanaya, this ballet has been in development for many years, and has been carefully nurtured to reach a level of excellence, in keeping with the standards of the Kalayathanaya.

  1. 1. Kumbi Kathawa (Ant Story): A Dance Drama March 2007 Sponsorship for New Ballet: September 2007 A Proposal by The Chitrasena Vajira Dance Foundation
  2. 2. Our Newest Creation, Kumbi Kathawa , Conveys Some Age-Old Truths Through a Simple Story Set in the Insect World <ul><li>Kumbi Kathawa (Ant Story) was conceived by Anjalika, Chitrasena and Vajira’s daughter. She was inspired by a Russian children's story. The ballet is choreographed and directed by Anjalika and Mahesh, who has also designed the amazing costumes and stage sets. As with any production from the Chitrasena Kalayathanaya, this ballet has been in development for many years, and has been carefully nurtured to reach a level of excellence, in keeping with the standards of the Kalayathanaya. </li></ul><ul><li>The ballet opens in an ant colony, where different ant families are at work, completing their specialized tasks (cooking, cleaning, washing clothes etc) for the good of the whole community. One day, however, the main ant family leaves the colony to gather food. In their absence, an evil force, a mosquito, arrives and decides she wants to take over the beautiful place where the ants live. She terrorizes the ants, chases them away, and then destroys their home. When the lead ant family return after gathering food, they find their home destroyed and their friends missing. The mosquito shows no sympathy to their plight, and proceeds to chase them away as well. </li></ul><ul><li>Homeless and alone, the main ant family do not despair. They come across an old tin, and decide to make it their home. In order to celebrate their new beginning, and to make new friends, they host a tea party and invite a number of different insects (grasshoppers, fireflies, ladybirds, butterflies) to their new home. During the tea party, a storm strikes, and suddenly a flood surrounds them. The winged insects take off, but those who can’t fly are left behind. The quick-thinking ants are able to topple their tin to make it float, and then start helping other insects who have been caught in the flood. They are even able to rescue the evil mosquito who had previously terrorized their world. </li></ul><ul><li>Many basic human qualities are highlighted through this simple insect story – strength in unity; working for the greater good of the community; greed and the ugly actions that follow; staying positive and not succumbing to despair; quick thinking in a crisis; and finally and most importantly, forgiveness and compassion. </li></ul>OUR NEWEST CREATION
