There once was a jackal who accidentally fell into a vat of blue dye. When he emerged, his majestic new appearance led the other animals to think that it was a special creature. Soon after, the jackal ruled the forest as its king until the full moon rose.


Find out what happens in The Indigo Jackal, a story with music, dance and puppetry inspired from a Panchatantra tale (ancient Indian animal fables).
