The Indian Council for Cultural Relations is touring Ranjana Gauhar’s Dance Drama, Chitranaga, to several cities in the UK including Devon (Dartington 9 April), London (Bhavan 11 April), Nottingham (The Djanogly Theatre 15 April), Belfast-N.Ireland (Crescent Arts Centre 19 April), New Castle Upon Tyne (Jubilee Theatre 21 April) and Birmingham (DRUM 22 April), amongst other places.

Inspired by Tagore’s vision and his sensitivity to portray ‘the complete woman’ as one who personifies love, courage and substance, the eminent Odissi exponent, Ranjana Gauhar, recounts the tale of Chitrangada, a Manipuri princess, who through her passion for Arjun, the great warrior from the epic Mahabharata, came to realize that her true power and potential as a woman lay in her duty towards society.

Concept & Choreography by Ranjana Gauhar, Music Director : Saroj Mohanty, Technical Director : Gautam Bhattacharya/Sandeep Datta and Narrator : Averee Chaury
