Event Description

Girish Karnad's Hayavadana is a modern classic. When it burst onto the Indian stage in the 1970s, it was an immediate success with audiences and critics alike. Using traditional Indian theatre techniques such as masks and a sutradhar (narrator), the play examines modern questions of identity and self-hood. There is a horse-headed man who longs to be complete, there is a young woman who mixes up the heads of her lover and her husband, there is a child who cannot speak -- the stories intertwine and illuminate each other as they ask the most important of all human questions: who am I? Neelam Man Singh, with her innovative narrative techniques and her powerful stagecraft enriched by both modernity and tradition, gives us Hayavadana anew. This is a chance to see one of our most imaginative theatre makers present one of our most important playwrights in a theatrical masterpiece that combines myth and folk tale, song and speech, humour and pathos, love, and jealousy, hope and despair. The experience of watching a great play created by a great director will be unforgettable.
