Abhimanyu

  • Naradagana Sabha TT Krishnamachari Rd, Teynampet Chennai-60004 India (map)

The Kattaikkuttu Young Professionals Company will perform Abhimanyu on the invitation of the Tamil Nadu Eyal Isai Nataka Manram.

Abhimanyu is a traditional all-night Kattaikkuttu play that dramatizes the single-handed fight of Arjuna’s 16-year old son Abhimanyu against a group of seasoned Kaurava warriors.

P. Rajagopal’s adaptation of the play is a strong anti-war message that features the adoloscent Abhimanyu caught in a net of futile violence and injustice.

With Kattaikkuttu actress S. Tamilarasi in the role of Abhimanyu and an introduction by Dr. Hanne M. de Bruin-Rajagopal.
