Gautama Buddha, the Shakya prince, became a world leader. Yashodhara, his wife, remains in the shadows. Yashodhara, a dance theatre production by JustUs Repertory, illuminates her plight — a single mother deserted by her husband. Grief impels Yashodhara to search for answers that she cannot find within the palace walls. Her inner evolution explores a poignant, powerful story of human loss, sorrow and transcendence.
Using Hindi, Pali and English narration, this experimental multi-genre production fuses the classical and contemporary to showcase the diversity of India's living traditions and cultures.
