Mahabharata, Dramatization of the Epic in English
BACK ON POPULAR DEMAND!! 2 MORE SHOWS!!! DEC 8-9 Dramatization of the Mahabharata, the world’s longest and most complex epic, is SETU's (www.setu.us) 10th production since its inception in 2003. The script for the play is adapted from works of Peter Brook/Jean-Claude Carrier, Rabindranath Tagore, and Syed Iman. Tickets are available at http://www.eventedge.biz/events.php?event_id=108 The core of Mahabharata is a feud between two dynasties over a throne that ended up in a war. So grand was the scale of destruction resulting from the war that often it is metaphorically compared with a modern-day nuclear holocaust. Mahabharata is not a work of religious instruction. It is much greater; it is a work of art. Political, philosophical, and socio-cultural messages of Mahabharata remain universal and timeless. With 100,000 poetic lines, composed almost 5000 years ago in 18 books, and about 8 times the length of combined Iliyad and Odyssey, it's impossible to do any justice to Mahabharat's enormity and complexity in less than two hours. Hence, we have used Indian tradition of Sutradhars (Narrators) who would connect various episodes from the great epic to create a thorough experience of the play. Viewers discretion advised. Shows are at the Historical Belmont Town Hall Theater, 455 Concord Avenue, Belmont, Massachusetts, 02478 on: Saturday, December 8th at 4 pm Sunday, December 9th at 4 pm Hope you can come and witness our efforts.
