Unravelled Unseen Layers of the Iconic Draupadi
No shows scheduled for now
Dr. Janaki Rangarajan
Act Two (When Time Stopped) is a dramatic new re-imagining of the thoughts and emotions coursing through Draupadi during the famous court scene where she is disrobed. Does she really care that her corporal nakedness will be revealed? There are more layers here than the yards of clothing that keep spinning away from her body.
Act Three (Wild Flower) centers around the discovery of Draupadi's frozen body the foot of the Himalayas by a tribal woman. The woman is intrigued that Draupadi, who endured so many trials and tribulations, was left to die in frozen solitude as her husbands ascended to Heaven.
Act Four (The Politics of Draupadi) reflects on Draupadi as a Goddess. Why do we worship her? Are we elevating her to God status because it's unsettling to us that she does not conform to society's image of what a woman should be?
Unravelled is a thought provoking fresh performance you must watch.
