Two Masterpieces of Kutiyattam

Mantrankam and Anguliyankam

Edited by David Shulman and Heike Oberlin

  • This volume is an in-depth study of the two major, most complex and ancient works in Kerala's Sanskrit theatre, Kutiyattam, the acts known as 'Anguliyankam' and 'Mantrankam'.
  • The book includes essays by actor-performers and also those by scholars of the tradition; in the process the reader has access both to important technicalities of the two performance texts and to interpretations of what these great works are trying to say.
  • This unique volume will be of interest to readers eager to learn about the last living tradition of Sanskrit theatre. These studies contribute in their own way to the ongoing vitality of Kutiyattam in its active performances sites in Kerala and abroad.
