Kooththu(Traditional Theatre) in Thattumunai, Vaharai, Sri Lanka

After a long period, the Thattumunai village has started to practice the "Kusalavan" vadamody kooththu(March 2010). I captured some pictures during their practicing time.

Thattumunai is a village located in Koralaipattu North DS division (Vaharai) and affected very vastly by both Tsunami and the War. They have started to practice this kooththu after a long time. This is a significant event in Vaharai that they have committed to perform this kooththu to mobilize their community towards living together.
