‘Desdemona Roopakam’ is a play that looks at the narratives of missing women in epics and is sung entirely like a Chamber Opera using Carnatic, Hindustani and Folk music. 
Desdemona Rupakam contests the absence of female voices which could otherwise have provided a deeper insight into the life of Desdemona, thereby challenging the erasure of any resistance from Desdemona as she is killed by Othello. The play co-written by MD Pallavi, Bindhu Malini, Veena Appiah, Abhishek Majumdar and Irawati Karnik also comprises the original text of Shakespeare’s Othello and poetry by Tishani Doshi.
