Kuttu Kalai Kudam
In 2006 the Sangam completed the construction of the Kuttu Kalai Kudam or the Centre for performing arts. It is now home to the Sangam's office and the Kattaikkuttu Gurukulam, at Punjarasantankal Village in the Kanchipuram District of Tamil Nadu. The Kuttu Kalai Kudam provides the physical space and facilities where the special qualities and dignity of Kattaikkuttu can be maintained, strengthened, transmitted and enjoyed. It offers an inspiring environment, where artists of different backgrounds can meet and where new experiments, including a search for parallel ways of using Kattaikkuttu for non-traditional purposes and an exchange with other art forms, can be carried out. The geographical location of the Kuttu Kalai Kudam within the rural community guarantees rural people's access to their own cultural expressions and performance practices.
