Elephant in the Room
Elephant in the Room, the globally acclaimed solo performance by Yuki Ellias returns to Mumbai after successful tours in Edinburgh, Hong Kong, Australia and more.
Master Tusk is a young boy, who has been given a new head – an elephant’s head. Confused and bewildered, he finds himself lost in the forest. Danger lurks at every turn. Amidst a cursed love affair, an encounter with an eccentric old elephant and the hunt for his missing head, Master Tusk sets off on an adventure that changes his life. But will he be able to carry his head on his shoulders? Inspired by the world of Indian mythology, Elephant in the Room pays homage to the beloved God, Lord Ganapati, in this quirky and poignant reinterpretation of his story.
