Sunday 12 February 2017 5.30pm
Tarala Balu Kendra, Auditorium, R T Nagara, NammaBengaluru,



Suvarana Prasadhana YakshaRanga presented Yakshagaana,  a story (Prasanga) from Mahabharatha, "Gadha Yuddha". At the end the great battle between Kouravas and Pandavas, Kouravesha (Duryodhana, Suyodhana) was left behind. To save himself from eventual killing from Pandavas, he hides in water of Vyshampayana Lake.




Pandavas (DharmaRaya, Bhima, Arjuna, Nakula and Sahadeva with their mentor SriKrishna) find out the location of Suyodhana in water and chides and insults him to come out, The final battle between Bhima and Duryodhana is "Gadha Yuddha", played umteen number of times various artists from different groups of Yakshagana (Mela).


What makes the difference is the presentation of the play, with the artists showing their skills and expertise in the dance, dialogues, expression and poise and pose (Abhinaya).  The mature artists who played Duryodhana, SriKrishana, Bhima. Ashwathama, and Hasya roles were excellent and the "Bhaagavataru" singing was also very good.
150-minutes presentation of YakshaGaana ,"Dance Ballet" was superb.
