Abhimanyu

  • Bhavan's Rajaji Vidyashram Auditorium 6, Kilpauk Garden Road Chennai, TN, 600010 India (map)

The Kattaikkuttu Young Professionals Company will perform the last scene of Abhimanyu on the invitation of Kalpvriksh Montessori Community School.

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.
