Deccan Chronicle | Yuki makes it ‘one’derful
This weekend, Bengaluru will be treated to a one-woman show. Yuki Ellias, a Mumbai-based powerhouse performer will be bringing to the city her play Elephant in the Room that won her the awards for best actor, costume and lighting at the 2017 Mahindra Excellence in Theatre Awards. Directed and performed by Yuki herself, the play is inspired by the tales of Ganapati, and is a eccentric and touching reinterptation of the myth.
