Trivandrum:  The capital city is in for a rare treat today. Kottakkal Devadas, who is renowned for essaying the character of Hanuman in Kathakali, will perform here in connection with the 28th remembrance of Vellayani Narayanan Nair, the author of many Kathakali plays. This is for the first time that Devadas is enacting the role in the city.

The ‘Kalyanasougandhikam’ Kathakali will be staged at Theerthapada Mandapam, East Fort, at 5 p.m. Young artiste Peesappilly Rajeevan will play Bheema. Devadas and Rajeevan have made a mark as a team in Kathakali. The performance will reflect the northern style of the dance form. Kalamandalam Jishnu Ravi will enact Panchali.
‘Bharathantham Attakatha,’ which gives an anti-war message and presents a women’s perspective, will be released on the occasion. The play, presented in over 100 stages, is written by Prasanth Narayanan. Kalamandalam Krishnadas, winner of the Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Akademi award, will be felicitated on the occasion. Minister for Forest K Raju will inaugurate the function.
