Another Staging of the Draupadi Story: Performative Feminism from Bengal

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Get this Document | Similar Titles



Abstract:

This paper addresses Bratati Bandyopadhyay’s recitation of the poem “Draupadi Janma” which reconceptualizes, as a protestor, the wife Draupadi of the Indian epic The Mahabharata. Draupadi was wagered by her husbands in a game of dice, and assaulted by her husbands’ rivals. In her recitation Bandyopadhyay uses staged gestures and movements, such as walking towards men on a period set as she poses piercing questions or makes assertions. While Mahasweta Devi’s and Spivak’s re-writing of Draupadi’s story brought one kind of revolutionary figure from Bengal into the American academy, Bandyopadhyay’s performance, despite its outsider status, could bring in another.
