Image Construction in Koodiyattam: A Workshop Based on Mudra

Mudras or hand gestures are the most important medium of communication in Koodiyattam. Most of the Mudras are highly systematised in this 2000-year-old artform and it is hard for those who are new to the artform to understand this Mudra language. The performer makes images of various features such as mountains, forests, trees, rivers, etc. only through these gestures. How is this magic happening on stage? This workshop will provide a detailed introduction to Mudras, with percussion support by Sri. Kalamandalam Dhanarajan.
