A noble Kaiser’s evil spirit had him hypnotized / A super caliph reduced to committing genocide / On horseback ride he pored over heads hacked off to the side; Was he the victor or victim, he couldn’t decide… The ghost of Kalinga wept a thousand tears / For wounds that wouldn’t heal in a million years / Perspective returned to the autocrat; a pyrrhic victory couldn’t keep his soul intact… In this beautiful performance, Priyanka Dasgupta conveys the poignant story of Asoka, one of India’s greatest emperors, and the transformation he underwent upon winning the war against Kalinga. European premiere, must-see!
