Meet Aravan. Just another regular boy in search of his father. His only wish is to be part of a story greater than himself, so he can be remembered by someone... anyone. Which should not be difficult, once he discovers that he is the son of Arjuna, the great Pandava warrior. But the mastermind Krishna has other plans for him, and he manipulates Aravan into accepting one of the most unusual tasks in the Mahabharata.
Between his acceptance of the task and its fulfillment lies one night. Only. One night that could change everything. One night that could have far reaching consequences. One unforgettable night that could perhaps make Aravan remembered forever. By some. Perhaps.
One Night Only is the 63rd Akvarious production. It is a movement and dance-based drama, which uses dance forms such as Bharatnatyam, Contemporary, Odissi, and Karagattam, and the martial art form of Kalaripayattu, set to modern and Tamil folk music, to tell this lesser-known but fantastic tale from the great Indian epic, which has a deep-rooted connection with the transgender community.
