Brihannala: A performance by Aniruddhan Vasudevan that incorporates movement, story-telling, and spoken word.

Aniruddhan Vasudevan, a performer and writer from Madras/ Chennai, India, is currently a graduate student in Anthropology at the University of Texas, Austin. He is a trained performer of Bharatanatyam, a classical Indian dance form, and he has shared his work through performances, classes and workshops, as well as through collaborations with other artists, and by composing new dances. He is a student of the legendary performer and teacher, Chitra Visweswaran. Aniruddhan’s training in Bharatanatyam began in 1988 in his hometown, Kumbakonam, with Kuttalam M Selvam, in the Kattumannar Kovil school of Bharatanatyam.
Aniruddhan is currently working on adding to his performance work ‘Brihannala,’ which is based on a queer moment from the Hindu epic the Mahabharata, and is also lost in a mire of ideas towards creating a performance-installation piece based on the concept of overwriting.
