The link to the live-streaming of the March 1st Event in Chennai by Kattaikkuttu Gurukalam, featuring a performance of Pakadai Tukil by the Gurukalam’s Apprentices, will still be active for the next two months. This is a great opportunity to see some amazing contemporary Tamil Nadu theatre!
Or early morning, depending on your hemisphere. Kattaikkuttu: A Night of Tamil Theatre, is March 1st at 6pm at The Music Academy Mini-Hall, Chennai. Featuring a performance of Pakadai Tukil by the school’s apprentices. If you’re in Chennai and want to see the show, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Back at Bennington and missing Kattaikkuttu Gurukalam already! My second to last night was spend shooting one last video. Above is a photo of us on set. On the left is the brilliant Kattaikkuttu actress Tamilarasi dressed as one of her favorite characters. On the right is the the incredible drummer Selva dressed as Harry Potter. I’m the one in the middle, who’s not dressed in a costume for once in her life (ironically). Click the link below to see our movie, and see more awesome videos of Tamila performing on her Youtube!
I’ve spent the past six weeks working as a costume designer/ video documentarian for Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam Theatre School and Kattaikkuttu Young Professionals Theatre Company in Tamil Nadu India. So sad my internship is coming to an end when it feels like it’s just begun! See the links below to watch some cool videos of the rehearsals for the March 1st performance of Pakadai Tukil in Chennai, then book your tickets, or tune in to the live-streaming. The videos were created by yours truly!
