NangyarKoothu is an ancient dance form, which is unique in that, it is exclusively the domain offe male solo performers.It is performed with the purpose of attuning the audience emotionally to the main rasa of the protagonist. It will be followed by Koodiyattam.

Dr Indu will perform this art form and further exposit it during the interactive session-Mukhamukham.

ChakyarKoothu is another Keralan temple art we are presenting this year. With his incisive wit, the chakyar served as a social commentator, protected by the privilege that no one is outside the purview of his critical examination.

Sri Margi Madhu, a foremost proponent of the art form, will elicit the wit and wisdom of Chakyarkoothu for KALA audience.

This year KALA is proud and pleased to honour Justice KS Radhakrishnan Panicker, Member Of Commonwealth Secretariat Arbitral Tribunal, London, as our Chief Guest. Before getting this international recognition, he served as a judge of the Supreme Court of India, prior to which, he served as the Chief Justice of the Gujarat and Jammu & Kashmir High Courts. During his tenure, he has issued judgements which ensured equality for transgender persons and protection to animals from cruel sports.
