Abstract:

"Tirtha Amertha, the Ambrosia of Immortality, is a rarely seen episode from the Mahabarata, one of the central epics of Hindu mythology. Nine masked actors/shadowcasters perform with shadowmasters I Waya Wija and Larry Reed. In Ambrosia of Immortality a war rages between the gods, who have it all, and the demons (aka: the former gods) who want it all back. Together they must churn the Milky Ocean to create the elixir of Immortality. The gods and demons succeed at this epic test of faith, but then things go wrong as they struggle for possession of the powerful Ambrosia."--Container.
