The Draupadi Project

Sharada Eswar’s The Draupadi Project, a half- history, half-mythology, wholly-magical reimagining of the ancient Indian epic, “The Mahabharata”. In this contemporary retelling, the spirit of Draupadi, an important feminist icon in the tale, is channeled through the character of a 19-year old girl confined in a cell, wrestling with the voices in her head and grappling with the status of women in today’s society.
