$30 US Draupadi
Features: Ratna Roy.
Directed by: David J. Capers
(30 minutes, DVD)


Draupadi begins with a 10 minute introduction by Ratna Roy. Opening with a brief explanation of Classical Indian Dance, she then introduces Orissi, and follows with a short telling of Draupadi's story. Video clips, over her words, demonstrate how the story will be expressed in dance form, increasing the viewing pleasure for anyone not familiar with the sign language of Indian Classical Dances (see book, Mudras [IN SYMBOLS] on Books page, for in depth study of this linguistic form). The final 18 minutes are a studio recording of Ratna performing the entire Mahari style dance-drama, Draupadi, as choreographed by her late guru, Padmashri Guru Pankaj Charan Das.
