Mata Hari: Butterflies who lives in the sun must die young


Theatre Nisha presents the play Mata Hari, a one-woman show, with the accompaniment of a musician from Chennai.
Mata Hari has been a figure of deep intrigue for years. She is an iconic woman, whose flamboyant and tragic life has fascinated biographers, actors, directors and writers alike. It is then justified to say that she embodied the phrase ‘femme fatale’ through her life- one that was misunderstood, envied and scorned. The costumes, the influence of Orientalism, the lively connect she shared with Paris, the ensuing tragedy makes it a colourful and intense production.
