Dedicated to the memory of our Guru,
GURU AMMANNUR MADHAVA CHAKYAR

From 1 – 9 July 2010
Venue: Madhava Natya Bhoomi, Ammannur Gurukulam, Irinjalakuda

Two years have passed since the demise of our Guru ammannur Madhava Chakyar. Every July Ammannur Gurukulam holds Gurusmarana Kutiyattam Festival in memory of our legendary master. Last year we held ‘Abhishekotsavam’ where all seven acts of Bhasa’s Abhisheka Nataka were performed. This year we present Vidushaka Mahotsavam – a celebration of the Vidushaka or clown in Kutiyattam Theatre. The various plays where Vidushaka-s come as prominent characters will be presented through nine evenings. There will also be papers presented by eminent personalities on the same topic preceding the performances. Performers include actors and musicians of Ammannur Gurukulam and eminent guest artistes.

Welcome!
