Krishna's Dark Son and Kumarasambhavam


Krishna's Dark Son and Kumarasambhavam


If you thought Krishna was infamous for his naughtiness, wait till you hear the story of his son. This is a tale about Sambha, Krishna’s son from Jambavati. A less heard tale of a boy, who in all his glory and spirit was destined to destroy the Yadava dynasty. His actions spurred the sages to curse him. A curse that killed all.

Actor: Aparna Kumar

Script, Design and Direction: V. Balakrishnan


Considered one of Kalidasa’s seminal poems, it epitomises the rasas of love, eroticism, beauty and romance. The endless prayers and penances performed by Parvathi to win Shiva’s love have set metaphors of love for centuries in the Indian culture. This version is inspired and adapted from Kalidasa’s Kumarasambhava by M. R. Kale, Kumara-Sambhava of Kalidasa edited by C. R. Devadhar and The Origin of the Young God Kalidasa by Hank Heitfetz.

Actor: Roshini Sridhar
