About BRAVE FESTIVAL

Mudiyett group performed on 14th July 2014 at Brave Festival in Wroclaw, Poland.Mudiyett is a traditional ritual theatre and folk dance drama from Kerala. Inscribed in UNESCO, Mudiyett is a 9th-century oral tradition and a rare social practice. It symbolizes the victory of good over evil displayed by the killing of a demon by the goddess. The performance involves the use of mask, body painting and is sacred in nature. Mudiyett is on the verge of extinction as only 3 groups are left in India who can perform this act. One of the leading troupes performing this act is Pazhoor Kunjan Marar Mudiyett Kalakendra. This group has performed at more than 8000 stages across India and abroad as well. Brave Festival is an exceptional venture dedicated not only to extraordinary artistic events but also to people of great courage who use their art to speak up about themselves, their identity, spirituality, and origins. It presents vanishing, marginalized and displaced artistic traditions from all around the world, and is open to genuine models of living, thinking, creating in the world dominated by the culture of media and consumption.
