About the Play

Set in India’s hyper-competitive and hyper-masculine reality dance competition world – the story of the two women who coveted both, the main prize and the man.

The iconic Indian tale has always had a man at the center of it – Devdas – the symbol of love and loss. The story of the tragic hero is told from the point of view of the women that loved him in this ballet set in modern India.

Through the use of original music composed by Aalap Desai and innovative Indo-contemporary choreography by star choreographer Swarali Karulkar, Hypokrit Theatre Company brings to the stage the oldest Indian love story, as its never been seen before, where women rule, and love and loss is just a transaction.
