Description- Natyadharmi in association with Unicorn Actors Studio brings one of the famous plays by Girish Karnad BALI – The Sacrifice. The King is devastated to discover that the queen is involved with an Elephant-keeper. In order to avert the evil consequences of her infidelity, he is forced to sacrifice a cockerel to the gods. But he is a Jain, and non-violence is the fundamental principle of Jain faith. In desperation, he Substitutes a bird made of dough, which in turn has unexpected results.
The myth is less concerned with actual violence than the morality of Substitution, which permits violence a wider and more subtle play by masking its true nature.
