Episode Details

Vipin is 15 years old and a student at the Kalamandalam School, where performing arts are taught. He has been studying Kutiyattam for three years, the only form of traditional Sanskrit theatre still performed in India. Each day, students are subject to rigorous discipline and intensive training. Thanks to the help of their teacher, Sangi, they will learn more than 400 codified gestures and will develop a new body, the Kutiyattam body. Dir.: Jean Queyrat. (52 min.)
