About the Show/Event

Information for Akshayambara at mac birmingham, Birmingham (Play). Akshayambara is an experimental play that uses modern theatrical tools and the dance drama form of Yakshagana to create a contemporary narrative that raises questions on female representation and male ownership. A male artiste in ?Streevesha' plays ?Draupadi' while in a tradition-defying move a woman is cast as the ?Pradhana Purushavesha' of the ?Kauravas.' What happens to the interpretation of gender when a man plays the streevesha and the purushavesha is played by a woman? Who is the real woman and who is the real man? When tradition can accept a man as a streevesha, can that same tradition accept a woman as a purushavesha? In Kannada with English subtitles.
Approximate runtime 90minutes (including any interval).
Age Advisory: 12+
Author Sharanya Ramprakash. Presented by Dramanon. Director Sharanya Ramprakash.
