MARGI SATHI- is one of the leading exponents of Nangiarkoothu and Kutiyattam. Kutiyattam, the 2000 year old classical Sanskrit theatre, is the stage rendering of well-known Sanskrit plays. It is recognized by UNESCO as a “masterpiece of the oral and intangible heritage of humanity.” To this ancient tradition belongs the 800 year, old Nangiarkoothu, a womans solo performance of narration of stories by means of hand gestures (Mudras) and facial expressions.
