Welcome to Natyanjali 2013!

In the performing arts world, festivals chase you. Or, you chase them.
And for us at KutcheriBuzz, keen to report on whatever we can in this world, there is a lot to do.

The Natyanjali Dance Festivals is one of our favourites. And for some very strong reasons.

Many years ago, we went to Chidambaram to take a peek at the Fest and still recall the evenings spent sitting in the sand and yards away from the built-up stage, watching the performances over just two evenings.

Quickly, we started to report the Fest all through.

We liked this event because it did not promote exclusivity and because the bonding between the hosts, artistes and rasikas and pilgrims to this great temple is warm.

Over recent times, the Fest has got bigger in that dancers from the far ends of our country and from abroad perform here.

Also, sister Natyanjalis have taken the cue from Chidambaram and got bigger and better. Thanjavur, Kumbakonam, Nagapattinam, Thiruvarur. . .now host the dance anjalis.

So this year, from March 10, Sivaratri evening onwards dancers will make their offerings to the lord of dance.

And we at KutcheriBuzz will keep you posted on the preview buzz. If you have queries, mail us at
