Background: Set in 490 BC India, during the era of Buddha and Mahavir Jain, this musical theatre production in an Uday Shankar ballet style is based on a story from Buddhist and Jain folklore. Through a dynamic performance of Indian classical dance, music, multimedia and Hindi dialogues, Australian-based internationally renowned dance directors Raghavan Nair and Poornima Sharma weave the emotions of power, greed, love, loss, betrayal, and victory through a captivating rendition of this story. Thematic Analysis: The theme of non-violence and karmic destiny is predominant in this production. On one side is Bimbhisar who saves the life of a baby, but is then killed by the same baby who ironically was his own son. Bimbhisar is satisfied with his life and at peace. Ajatshatru is proud and ambitious and is unable to trust anyone, not even his innocent father. He doesn’t know peace until he let’s go of his ego.
