Missed the war between Lord Ganesha and Mahasura? Catch the live action replay. Yakshagana is a traditional theatre form combining dance, music, spoken word, costume-makeup, and stage technique with a distinct style and form.
Pillatla Chandramouli, a resident of Rajapeta village of Nalgonda District, and his troupe would present a 30-minute recital of Yakshagana. Called Yakshaganamu in Telugu, he would have Ganesha as his theme and present the war between Lord Ganesha and the demon-king Mahasura.
Yakshagana, both interesting and intriguing, is a theatre form mainly prevalent in the coastal districts and adjacent areas of Karnataka. It is closely connected with other forms prevailing in other parts of Karnataka, and its neighbouring states of Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamilnadu and Maharastra.
Like many other forms, Yakshagana defies neat classification into categories like folk, classical, rural. It can be included into each of these, or even all of them together.
