The Peacock Prince draws inspiration from Kamala Subramaniam's Mahabharata and Devdutt Pattanaik's The Pregnant King, and has been scripted by V. Balakrishnan. It chronicles the journey of Amba who, after being rejected by Bhisma for marriage, vows to kill him. Shiva impressed by her earnest beseeching blesses her with the fulfillment of her desire in her next birth. Reborn as Shikhandi to Drupad, the daughter is raised as a son till she meets the Yaksha with whom she exchanges sex. The epic battle then witnesses Shikhandi as the son of Drupad, fighting for the Pandavas, ultimately facilitating the death of Bhisma. The course of Amba's vow's consummation through birth, rebirth and sexual transformation is conceptualised as a dance-dialogue that seamlessly amalgamates the word with Bharatanatayam to highlight the multitude of sensibilities of the character.More Info >>
