Hayavadana

In the spring semester of 2019, Gaurav was awarded a Fulbright festival to be in residence at Ohio Northern University and direct the theatre department’s International Play Festival: India. He chose to direct Hayavadana, by Girish Karnad, using a classical Sanskrit style, Hindustani music, and Kathak. There was live tabla and sitar, and the students were all trained in vocal Hindustani music and Kathak.

The play was performed from February 21-24, 2019 at the Freed Center for Performing Arts.
