AMRAPALI

            Written and directed by V. Balakrishnan, Amrapali is a solo-performance on the most intriguing figure from the Jatakas- the most beautiful woman turned state-bride. A courtesan who finds and loses love over battles raging in the region, and who ultimately seeks salvation under the Buddha. 

 

 

Language: EnglishDuration: 80 minutes 

 

 

Director's Note: 

 

Amrapali,

Ravishing beauty,

Courtesan,

Wedded to the state,

Lovers…

War, the enemy, and love,

Pain, dissatisfaction, and sorrow,

And then,

The Buddha
