Naatak presents its 46th production
A grand musical in Hindi
Judge her by the color of her skin
ABOUT THE PLAY
The princess Amavasya is devastatingly beautiful: black as night. Or she is so hideous that a glimpse of her milky-white face sends the victim into a three-day slumber. No one knows, because she is hidden behind a mask. What will her people see on the day she uncovers her face? Performed with music, dance, spectacular sets and costumes, AMAVASYA is an entertaining and humorous fairy-tale for grown-ups - both dark-skinned and light-skinned ones. The entire play rhymes.
The play is a Knight Foundation Grant winner. It features a unique combination of theater, music and dance - theater by NAATAK, live music composed and performed by Nachiketa Yakkundi and group, and original dance choreographed by Rasika Kumar and performed by Abhinaya Dance Company.
Language: Hindi (with English supertitles)
Run-time: 100 minutes
