Apart from its delectable cuisines, the first thing that comes to mind at the mere mention of the state of Tamil Nadu is the vision of traditional performers decked in elaborate make up and gaudy costumes—right? Referred to as Kattai Kuttu, this native dance form originated from Tamil Nadu and is basically a rural theatre dedicated to acts, lyrical storytelling, dance and music alike. Kattai Kuttu Kudam has kept the spirit of art and art forms thriving in Tamil Nadu and is known to be an off-shoot of Kattai Kuttu Sangam. Kuttu Kalai Kudam is a stoic platform for budding dancers, students and those looking towards experiencing its many delights. Here, contemporary artists are getting avenues for coming together and developing Kattai Kuttu in accordance to the prevailing times.
With the passage of time and people from nearby villages facing financial constraints, Katta Kuttu was fast receding into the dark realms of oblivion. However, the setting up of Kattai Kuttu Gurukulam has given a new lease of life to this fast fading art form. At this center, children from nearby villages are trained in this exquisite form of dance and are also offered academic education, vocational training and opportunities to learn other professional skills. This has helped Kattai Kuttu regain its cultural significance.
