Thillana Mohanambal (The Dance Queen Mohanambal) Dance Drama
The Tanjai Kamalaa Indira Dance School in collaboration with NLFCS Tan Sri K.R. Soma Arts & Cultural Foundation is back again with another mega-production. After the success of Kannagi: The Wrath of a Chaste Woman, Shiva Thandavam and Sri Valli Thirumanam, the collaborative duo brings you, THILLANA MOHANAMBAL!
With a storyline steeped in the ancient traditions of classical dance and music, the production reflects the symbolic relationship between music and dance represented through an interesting love affair. This beautiful sequel portrays the love that blooms between a Bharatanatyam dancer, Mohana and a Nadaswaram artist, Sikkal Shanmughasundaram, both exceptional in their talents. The many hurdles in their love story meander along with Mohana’s escapes from different men, ranging from kings to rowdies who desire to own her for themselves.
A true connoisseur’s delight, this production revolves around the many tribulations faced by a woman, that too by one of high repute and stature in society. Get ready to laugh, cry, emote, sit straight and connect all at once as the story, acting, dance, song come together to make Thillana Mohanambal, wholesome entertainment for you and your family!
