Deconstructing Deity (Day 1333)

By 19 April, 2018Uncategorized

The narrator Krishna/Ninad Limaye definitely has the better role than the Mahabharat Krishna/ Nakul Ghanekar and delivers a confident performance. From a childhood in Gokul and Vrindavan to adolescence in Mathura and later Dwarika, Hastinapur, Indraprasth, Kurukshetra and finally Somnath where he is hit by the arrow of Zaraon his foot and it is time to say adieu,.

It is not possible to feature all the phases and all the places, all the characters and all the conflicts but writer Vivek Aapte picks the crucial moments and bypasses others. Narrator Krishna counts his merits and demerits and interprets mythology and the deity for which all credit is due to co-directors Raghu Kul and Vivek Aapte for portraying a never done before format that is both shocking and refreshing.

The ballet is eventually about the extraordinary choreography by Sonia Parchure but also about Krishna’s philosophy and how to apply it in our day to day lives and face all the ongoing struggles.
