Exploring the conflicts around tradition, gender, power and morality, the play confronts female representation in the male-dominated practice of Yakshagana, a traditional theatre form that has been performed only by men in India for the past 800 years.
Akshayambara was created through personal collisions that playwright and director, Sharanya Ramprakash experienced as a woman in the male dominated art form.
