To mark Janmashtami festivities, Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra has organised a series of dance drama in its 47th edition of ‘KRISHNA’. Between September 1 – 4, the epic presentation will depict the fascinating life of Lord Krishna at the Kamani Auditorium in Copernicus Marg.
The two-and-half-hours-long production will commence at 6.30pm daily including an additional matinee show at 3pm on September 3. This year, Janmashtami will be celebrated on September 6 and 7.
Brilliant choreography, lighting, costumes, sound, technical support and ambiance await visitors of the programme.
For all these years, Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra has staged such cultural performances with the goal to include Indian customs and beliefs in a way that makes them relevant to the contemporary.
The Lord Krishna chapter is weaved with a variety of tales, myths, and magic, just like other chapters in Indian Hindu mythology, but it has always been regarded as being primarily practical and giving wisdom in many aspects of daily life. Using traditional Indian dance styles like Mayurbhanj Chhau and Kalaripayattu, the Kendra will depict this element of Lord Krishna’s colourful life, from his birth through his participation in the epic Mahabharata.
The entry fee for tickets range from Rs 300 to Rs 2,000 and are available on BookMyShow and at Kendra Office at Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra.
When: 6:30pm onwards; September 1- 4
Where: Kamani Auditorium in Copernicus Marg, New Delhi
