Two Masterpieces of Kuttiyattam: Mantrankam And Anguliyankam

Heike Oberlin (Editor) Elena Mucciarelli (Editor)

This volume focuses on Mantrankam and Anguliyankam that are the two great masterpieces of Kutiyattam, one of India's oldest living theatrical traditions. It provides some fundamental general remarks on the performance of Kutiyattam, relates it to the pan-Indian reflection on aesthetics, and gives an account of its development up to the present time. The chapters in the volume are authored by both scholars versed in this tradition as well as active Kutiyattam performers in Kerala, which is where it is practised. This is the first attempt to bring together a set of focused studies of this masterpiece-in-performance.
