HAYAVADANA

Curated By Arundhati Nag

The central idea behind the two-hour play is the question—what does one love in someone? Do we love their mind, or their heart? Here, the heart is representative of the body and the tangible, while the head represents the intangible—wisdom, poetry. 'Hayavadana' was scripted by Dr. Girish Karnad who has rendered rich literature, and directed by the theatre legend B.V. Karanth with lilting music. Continuing the legacy of Benaka, founded by B.V. Karanth, the classic play ‘Hayavadana’ has been staged in Bangalore, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and all over Karnataka in many festivals performed to packed audience by energetic and enthusiastic Benakites. Well-defined lighting, ethnic sets and apt costumes designed by Smt. Prema Karanth are used in the performance.
