Event Details

English Play

Dance Like a Man, 650 shows on and performed across five continents, tells the fascinating story of Jairaj and Ratna, two Bharatanatyam dancers past their prime, which is contrasted with that of their daughter Lata, who is on the brink of establishing herself as a brilliant dancer. Her imminent success creates tension and jealousy, and the audience is drawn into the dark secrets of family relationships and conflicts between generations. The play probes the surface of the characters to question their deeper motivations, but the mode is comic rather than tragic, even though the concerns are serious, and you are never sure whether to laugh or cry.
