The Draupadi Project
by Sharada Eswar
The Draupadi Project is a reimagining of the world-famous Indian epic, the Mahabharat – told from the point of view of an amazing woman. Relevant ot today’s war-torn world, The Draupadi Project takes us back in time that is half history, half myth and wholly magical. The piece is based in an exploration of the character of Draupaid from a contemporary perspective as her spirit is channeled through the character of a 19-year old girl who is on trial. Confined in a cell, the young woman wrestles with a multitude of voices, the futility of war and the role and status of a woman in today’s society.
