Golden Jubilee Kutiyattam festival at Kerala Kalamandalam


5-day long Kutiyattam, the Sanskrit theatre, festival in connection with the Golden Jubilee celebrations of the establishment of Kutiyattam department at Kerala Kalamandalam deemed university, Cheruthuruthy will be conducted from 24 to 28 Sept 2015. The inception of Kutiyattam department by Painkulam Ramachakyar (Late) was a revolutionary step in the field of Kutiyattam. With the efforts of Painkulam Ramachakyar and Padmashree P K Narayanan Nambiar, the maestros in Kutiyattam, the Sanskrit theatre flourished crossing the conservative boundaries of traditional kutiyattam. The 5-day commemorative Kutiyattam festival include performances of Kutiyattam, Nangiarkoothu, Prabandhakoothu etc. and academic sessions like debate/ discussions, seminars etc.
