SMRITI PADHA is an emotional and dramatic Kathakali performance of "Dussasana Vadham" from the Mahabharata at the Victoria Theatre on September 4 and 5, 2015. This is presented by Santha Bhaskar, one of Singapore's best known Indian classical dancers, who is now in her 70s, together with dancers from Bhaskar's Arts Academy and Kerala Kalamandalam.
In this epic tale of rivalry between Dussasana and Bhima from the Mahabharata audience will be able to experience the intense and sublime beauty of Kathakali or story play. This emotional and dramatic performance returns to Singapore after 60 years.
A few days before the actual event, a select group was invited to Discover the World of Kathakali. This offered a glimpse into the world of this art form including a dawn training session, make-up and costume demonstration that was conducted by an international expert together with two Kerala dance masters.
