The Elephant Wrestler

Home to 17 percent of the world's population and the intersection between first-world technology and gods and traditions of old, India is an exercise in modern life -- or, as this play proclaims, "a modern contradiction." Presented by New Zealand-based Indian Ink Theatre Company, The Elephant Wrestler is a two-person performance based on a fairy tale, following a tea seller (Jacob Rajan, playing every character) as he navigates life's pitfalls of tragedy and joy amongst an ever-changing cast of travelers.

Curtain is at 8 p.m. on Saturday, January 24, at Virginia G. Piper Theater at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second Street. Tickets range from $29 to $49 -- discounts for members and group packages. (Free admission is available for students, teachers, and veterans.) Call 480-499-8587 or visit Janessa Hilliard
