Chitrangada - The Warrior Princess
Running time: 2 hrs and 20 mins with one intermission
Raised as a man and a warrior, Princess Chitrangada finds herself at an impasse when she falls in love with Arjuna, the greatest warrior in the land. How does one woo a man? Does one appear as oneself or as a coy damsel in distress?
Chitrangada, The Warrior Princess, is an Indian dance ballet in English that explores and shatters the accepted rules of love, attraction, femininity, and illusion. Written in 1892 by Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, Chitrangada remains extremely relevant in present times as we probe gender stereotypes and the meaning of love.
Brought to you by Pratidhwani, a South Asian non-profit for the arts in Seattle, Chitrangada features eleven classical and contemporary Indian dance forms, original music recorded by Pratidhwani, and a cast of 40.
Chitrangada opens on April 28th, with 14 shows playing over 4 weekends through May 20.
