  • First time this play of Tagore is being presented in Bangalore through a dance ballet.
  • It is a combination of dance, drama, music for art lovers and connoisseurs of the city.
  • Tagore plays are socially relevant even today and this is one of his most famous work.

"The Dancer`s Worship"(Notir Puja)is a moving play by Rabindranath Tagore, set in the background of violence and tyranny in the kingdom of Magadha, when people were forbidden to embrace Buddhism, which was spreading its influence very rapidly.

In this play, Tagore creates the female protagonist, Srimati, a court dancer, strongly faithful to Lord Buddha after she meets one of his disciples.

Tagore interprets the Buddha`s gospel of renunciation in this play. There is more joy in renunciation than in possession. The teachings of Lord Buddha give Srimati a new life, a sense of renewed self-respect and hope of salvation. She agrees even to dance at the shrine at the cost of her life, for true devotion makes everything an act of worship.
