NGO Activities : Natanakairali, a Research and Performing Centre for Traditional Arts was established in 1975 with a vision of combining research, training and performance of traditional arts of Kerala for the rejuvenation and preservation of the most valuable intangible heritage of Kerala. Few art forms such as Kutiyattam(sanskrit theatre), Pavakathakali (glove puppets), Mohiniyattam (classical dance of women) etc were not only given a fresh lease of life but also in depth research studies have been carried out and several publications have been brought out. Natanakairali troupes of Kutiyattam, Pavakathakali and Mohiniyattam have been performing regularly at National and International venues. Our new Kutiyattam production SAKUNTALA was staged recently in Paris for the duration of 9 hours as a single day performance. This same 9 hour production was also presented under the auspices of National School of Drama, New Delhi (s Sep 2010). Our Pavakathakali troupe performed at the Akhyan Festival of IGNCA during Oct 2010.Following is the list of our publications - Mohiniyattam - The Lasya Dance(1983), Mudra-s in Kathakali(1984), Production of a play in Kutiyattam(1989), Puppetry and Lesser Known Dance Traditions of Kerala (1990), The Language of Kathakali(2000), Into the world of Kutiyattam with the legendary Ammannur Madhava Chakyar (2002), Kathakali, Kutiyattam and Other Performing Arts(2005)Hastalakshanadeepika in Mohiniyattam(2007).
