The Unheard Plea is a 75 minute solo dance theatre presented with English dialogues and lyrics in Sanskrit and Manipravalam to accompany the modern adaptation of the Indian mythology. This project is her brainchild, through the eyes of accomplished Mohiniattam Danseuse, Priya Krishnadas, who immediately responded and consented to the idea. The music has been composed by Delhi based carnatic vocalist and Composer Smt. Sudha Raghuraman.
The script and the original songs written for “The Unheard Plea” was conceived and conceptualised around Draupadi’s life. Neha dazzles the audience as she potrays Draupadi ranging from being naive to arrogant, as a strategist at the same time an opportunist, being in love and out of love, eventually acted as a catalyst in getting her closer to her destined purpose in life. The songs are penned by Dr. C.K Jayanthi who is a sanskrit scholar and Shri Suman Pokhrel, a multilingual poet, lyricist, playwright and translator from Nepal.
“The Unheard Plea” is a nod in the direction of raising awareness on women empowerment through art and theatre.
