The lord of the winds
All powerful and heroic.
Tasked by Gandhari, the mother of a hundred sons of the Kaurvanas, to bring news of the fate of her offsprings engaged in the Kurushetra war.
A reluctant servant, he does as he is instructed; constantly visiting her daily with mournful news of her sons.
Maya Dance Theatre (MDT) proudly presents PANCHA, a production spanning over three years and featuring five separate dance theatre works by artistic director, Kavitha Krishnan with different co-choreographers from Singapore and overseas.
