EARTH & FIRE

Earth & Fire delves into the lives of the two great heroines of the epics Ramayana and Mahabaratha. Sita, the daughter of the earth and a patient woman, tormented by hardship, is transformed into an illusionary Sita or Mayasita. Draupadi, daughter of the fire, is a powerful, passionate woman and wife to five brothers set on a path of destruction.

 

This production explores the difficulties a woman must face in a world which so often requires her to be Draupadi, yet expects her to be Sita.

 

Earth & Fire features ten female dancers along with special guest dancer Seran, accompanied by a traditional South Indian orchestra of five musicians.
