A play that looks at the narratives of missing women in epics and is entirely sung like a Chamber Opera using Carnatic, Hindustani and Folk. Desdemona Roopakam contests the absence of female voices which could otherwise have provided a deeper insight into the life of Desdemona and thereby challenging the erasure of any resistance from Desdemona as she is killed by Othello.
The play co-written by MD Pallavi, Bindhumalini, Veena Appiah, Abhishek Majumdar and Irawati Karnik also comprises the original text of Shakespeare’s Othello and poetry by Tishani Doshi.
For ages 12+
