Involving children and their families in Kathakali

Sangeethasabha has successfully tried to involve the children  from the neighbourhood and their families in the Kathakali performances.

The attakatha 'Santhanagopalam'  was first staged in Mankave in 2006 (see pic to the right).
Two of the children who took part later finished their basic course and performed purappadu in Dec 2009.Santhanagopalam was staged again in 2009 at Mankave.All the nine children and their families stayed up
till 2.30am , and enjoyed the performance.
