Through the beautiful, witty and touching interaction between dancers, performers and character puppets, magically brought to life, Draupadi slowly begins to unravel the clues to her past.

Draupadi, lead heroine drawn from the Indian epic Mahabharata, musters fiery strength and courage to resolve conflicts that have ravaged her land.

An innovative fusion of dance, storytelling, puppetry & music.
