about kuttu kalai kudam

Mention Tamil Nadu and one of the most common association is traditional performers in elaborate make up and costumes apart from the food. Ever wondered the enigma that these dances appear to be? Called Kattai Kuttu, one of the several dance and music forms native to Tamil Nadu, it is essentially rural theatre that involves dance, acts and music, lyrical storytelling at its best.Keeping the art thriving and ensuring its inheritance in the cultural DNA of Tamil Nadu, Kattai Kuttu Kudam, a branch of Kattai Kuttu Sangam, conducts not just classes in Kattai Kuttu but is a platform where artists can get together and adapt and develop Kattai Kuttu for contemporary times.

Over the years with increasing villagers facing financial constraints and lack of access to resources, Katta Kuttu was fast becoming a lost art relegated to the bygone times However, with the set up of  Kattai Kuttu Gurukulam where children from local villages are not just given training in Kattai Kuttu but also academic education along with vocational training in other professional skills, Kattai Kuttu has regained its cultural significance.

You can book a Kattaikuttu performance entirely for yourself and your family and can also choose its theme. Generally, the performances last a total of 45 minutes. They also have a special visitors programme wherein you get to explore, experience and be a part of many of the centre's activities. Another way of experiencing Kattai Kuttu Kudam is to book their guesthouse and spend your days in Chennai right in the midst of its cultural heritage, watching the incredible plays and performances.and enjoying elaborately prepared South Indian dishes day in and out.

In fact if you are an artist and seeking creative inspiration and space Kattai Kuttu Kudam is the perfect place to head to where you can rent out their theatre, attend workshops or conduct workshops of your own and who knows, you might just fall in love with the experience and decide to stay on as a volunteer.
