‘La Loba’ will be staged at Vylloppilly Samskriti Bhavan, 6.30 p.m., today. The play questions conventional values and raises uncomfortable questions about a woman’s place in society and history. There is bitterness and anger at the atrocities heaped on women but the play ends on a positive note. The mother hopes and dreams of a brighter future for her child.
Yasmin has been performing ‘La Loba’ for the past eight years.
The background music, composed by Jairo is as interesting as the play itself. A gong from Bali, simple musical instruments from Brazil, Columbia and India score over the heavy instrumentation that passes for background music in popular plays.
