“Mahabharata – Nalacharitam” – directed by Satoshi Miyagi

“Mahabharata,” a performance highly praised at Festival d’Avignon, one of the world’s most prestigious performing arts festivals, is making a return appearance in France!

The SPAC’s “Mahabharata” depicts the most beautiful and spectacular love story among the ancient Indian epics, using spectacular visual effects arranged like a scroll.
The July 2014 performance at Festival d’Avignon received standing ovations from a full-house audience every day. Since then, the performance has evolved through its various stages around the world. Its latest version will appear at Japonisme 2018. A ring-shaped stage surrounding the audience, profound narrative and body movements, and live music played by the actors, all come together to highlight the festive musical by Satoshi Miyagi and SPAC, as they build on the momentum of “Antigone” that marked the opening of Festival d’Avignon in 2017.
