What’s In Store

The ballet show aims to bring alive the legend of Krishna from tales, myths and stories, whether it was his years of childhood or the antics he played while growing into a young adult. Following the premise that Mahabharat’s Krishna and the butter-stealing Krishna are two different characters who have blended over time, the ballet presents Krishna’s two different personalities in completely opposite ways.

The play’s first half is devoted to famous stories like ‘Makhan Chori’, ‘Govardhan’, ‘Kaliya Raas’, and others. In this production, the status of women has been given a new meaning. ‘Krishna’ raises the position of ‘Radha’ from that of a lover to being his “divine consort”. The story of the Yadavas is linked with that of Krishna Vasudeva, whose uncle Kansa tries to kill him but he overcomes and the lengthy fight with Magadha’s Jarasandha pushes Krishna and the Yadavas to leave Mathura and go to Dwarka.

The ‘Chakradhari Krishna’ of the second half has been described as the one who despite having leadership skills, becomes subject to divine foolishness. This act is based on lesser-known Mahabharat stories. There has been a single-minded effort to break out from the rut of mindless faith and raise concerns of importance. With this clear aim, the plot’s second half deals with situations that bring up several timeless and everlasting topics for dialogue.
