Dhaatu Puppet Festival 2013

12-14 April

The Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan and Indiranagar Sangeetha Sabha are presenting this year’s festival, which will feature episodes from the ‘Panchatantra’ and the epics Ramayan and Mahabharat. In-house puppeteers from Dhaatu, a non-profit, will put up two shows daily. “The afternoon shows will be shorter, of around 25 minutes each, and primarily for children. They will be of two kinds: slapstick and traditional," says Anupama Hoskere, Dhaatu’s director. The evening shows will feature string puppetry. “Throughout the festival, all forms of puppetry will be covered: from rod puppetry to shadow art. There will also be a puppet parade," adds Hoskere.

The focus of the festival, however, is the Eachanur style, which uses brightly coloured puppets. It gets its name from the Eachanur Kaval village in Karnataka’s Tumkur district.

4pm/6pm (Friday) and 3pm/6.30pm (Saturday and Sunday). Indiranagar Sangeetha Sabha, 8th Main, HAL Stage II, Indiranagar. For details, call 25215525 or visit www.dhaatu.org.
