Sun 10/04 | Sheejith Krishna’s Don Quixote (Natya Dance Theatre)


“Animated dialogue, eye-catching imagery and a flood of ragas…
the production was distinctive for the layered nuances and the dynamic movements” – The Hindu
Sheejith Krishna’s Don Quixote is the first adaptation of Cervantes’s novel in the Bharata Natyam idiom, breaking new ground in uniting classical forms with contemporary elements in this cross-cultural work.
Sheejith Krishna’s “Don Quixote” showcases the rich traditions and arts of India, simultaneously extending their scope to engage varied audiences at home and abroad.
An idealistic dreamer sets out to revive the lost tradition of chivalry. Accompanied by his faithful friend Sancho Panza, Don Quixote has a series of fantastic adventures in his quest to save the world. Miguel Cervantes’ seventeenth-century novel spotlights the power of storytelling. It celebrates the extra ordinariness of ordinary people coming together across differences and difficulties. Beauty and dignity emerge out of indignity and ugliness, as do conviction, passion, humour, and heart.
