Kathakali Festival
Sakthi Theatres Abu Dhabi and Manirang Abu Dhabi are pleased to announce its next Kathakali extravaganza in the capital of UAE to be held between 6th and 8th November 2014.  The programme  will be held at Kerala Social Centre between 6 and 11pm on every day.
The performance will center around the heroism of Arjuna in Mahabharatam, which is titled as DHANANJAYAM. This will cover three important incidents involving Arjuna.
The three stories to be performed include Santhanagoplam on the first day, second day Subhadraharanam and finaly Utharaswayamvaram.
It is fortunate that, none other than Padmasri Kalamandalam Gopi is essaying on stage the myriad emotional states of the great epic hero Arjuna on all three days. He will be supported by other prominent artists including Sri Margi Vijayakumar, Kalamandalam Shanmukhan, Pathiyur Sankarankutty, Kottakkal Madhu, Kalamandalam Krishnadas and others.
Thayambaka Festival
To add sparkle to the event, a spectacular Thayambika will be performed at the beginning of the Kathakali performance each day by a star studded cast including Sri Porur Unnikrishnan, Sri Kalpathi Balakrishnan and Sri Udayan Nambuthiri.
The Thayambaka performances will unveil their art in three styles - Malamakavu, Palakkadan and Pallavoor on each day.
To  add knowledge and understanding to the audience, there will be an orientation session  by experts each day at the beginning of the programme.
