Event description
“An Epic Heroine In Kuala Lumpur” - A heroine way ahead of her time

About this Event

The Unheard Plea dwells around Draupadi, the epic heroine of Mahabharata, who was a woman way ahead of her time. Emerging from the sacred flames, she was raised to fulfil her father’s desire for revenge. Of unparalleled beauty, she was an epitome of femininity, compassion and virtue. Fiery, intense and emotional, she remains an icon of early feminism today.

Draupadi,a woman who boldly acknowledged her sexuality.

Fearless and outspoken, she dared to question the ordains of a patriarchal society. Her intelligence and knowledge of state affairs was considered no less than that of any Man at that time . Her skilful use of intellect, helped vanquish her tormentors and rescued her husbands from humiliation and misery.

The Unheard Plea, is a 75 minute solo dance presented with English dialogues and Sanskrit lyrics to accompany the modern adaptation of the Indian mythology. As a Bharatanatyam Dancer and a person delving with creativity, Neha Mondal Chakravarty has often contemplated on taking subjects that raises uncomfortable questions, gender bias is a stigma under which we all have grown up. Even if not directly affected, but it does affect the society and indirectly the people living in it. This project is her brainchild, through the eyes of Priya Krishnadas who immediately responded and consented to the idea.

Priya is an accomplished Mohiniattam Danseuse who is well read with scriptures and Indian Mythology, and writes blogs, also assists dancers with research work .

Her take on the Epic Heroine:

WHY DRAUPADI?

Much has been said about this accomplished heroine of Mahabharatha, yet how much do we know of her! With several interpretations, the bar rises yet the challenge is to go through the same experience like never before.
