Nanda: The Jacket
Four action heroes in the throes of superstardom, Nanda presents more than a show, more than a concert, an exuberance that is far beyond theater. Nanda is life on the edge, a fantastical risk-a-thon where our comic ninja warriors bust down all expectation with a show that is hilariously funny and physically brilliant.
Now in its sixth season, Nanda presents a first evening-length production, The Jacket. Sixty minutes of high voltage juggle-power and full throttle acro-ninja extremism, this fast-paced comedy is a blast for audiences of all ages. This is more than entertainment; this is theater as a survival tactic.
Bad ass super humans hot off the international stage, the toast of Seattle's bumbershoot, King 5 news, and the New Old Time Chautauqua, Nanda has performed throughout the US, Mexico, and Canada. Howard Patterson of the Flying Karamazov Brothers says of the group, "The Nanda boys do things I always wanted the Karamazovs to do, but couldn't hire the talent Go Nanda! Banzai!"
The Jacket is an explosion of combusted energy, the quintessence of great entertainment. One man quests to wear The Jacket, an omnipotent garment carrying super-human powers. Another man also quests to wear the jacket. And, in defiance of the laws of jacket-to-human ratio, two more men also quest to wear the jacket. Four men quest to wear one ultra-cool jacket. The journey, dangerous; the odds, improbable; the show, unbelievable. Nanda, at the height of cool and the pinnacle of technical velocity, blast us back to our theatrical roots, where we sit wildly excited and consistently awed. A kung-faux comedy on overdrive, the Jacket's live, eccentric flair will keep you literally leaping out of your seat.
West Coast natives, our Nanda heroes shared a childhood in Port Townsend, WA, a small town on the edge of the Olympic Peninsula where they were raised among the absurd and the talented, vaudevillians and magicians, the good, the bad, and the juggley. Two years ago, their four charming mugs literally burst onto the international scene, playing to packed houses and rave reviews.
