It is new to 2008 at the Fest - a sound and light show on the core of Mylapore.
The focus is on the temple and the Mada veedhis.
Sounds simple but the butterflies are around and about!
For, there are many components to this show.
It has dance and music, it has video and docu-film, it has mime and narration.
And two dozen people are involved in it.
Sujatha Vijayaraghavan, scholar and arts activist, is working on the script.
Dancer Sashirekha Rammohan is directing the dancers and actors.
Dancer Priya Murle should have done the Mylapore kuravanji. But she's busy with the 'season' so she will guide another dancer with this delightful piece.
Another dancer, Gayathri Balagurunathan, is also busy on stage and will present a piece on Goddess Karpagambal, through her dancer colleagues.
Mohan Das Vadakara has been out with her camera shooting. And if Nagaraj cuts the film well, there is a delightful cameo docu on one of Mylapore's colourful streets. Which one? Wait for the show!
I am hoping we will do well with this. Pardon us if we slip. Once sharp and smart, this is the kind of show we should have up every weekend outside/inside the koil.
The show is on every evening at the Fest.
