KOCHI: C. N. Sreekantan Nairs �Lankalakshmi is a challenge for any director, for its text featuring poetic language and imagery. That is the challenge Chandradasan is attempting to tackle now.
His production of �Lankalakshmi will be staged in the city in the second week of September. �For a beginning, we are trying to bring in a new culture with this play, as it would be staged on five consecutive days and entry will be only for those with tickets, says Mr. Chandradasan.
Only the casting part has been completed, as the director is still working on the stage design.
�I want to break the conventional acting style. My attempt will be to find a link between the performance as required by the text and the expressions that the actor develops on his own. That is why now we are concentrating on actors getting into their characters,� he says
