*About Thillana Mohanambal*
Thillana Mohanambal (The Dance Queen Mohanambal) is a silver screen masterpiece which hit commercial success in 1968 and still reigns in the hearts of classic movie lovers. The Tanjai Kamalaa Indira Dance School (TKI) will be staging an adaptation of this masterpiece as a dance drama, conceptualized using the fine art of Bharatanatyam, the school’s forte for over 50 years now. With decades of history in the production of dance dramas, the school is the first to take up this monumental task of bringing to live stage this unique musical drama film that was originally written as a serial story by the prolific writer Kothamangalam Subbu and featured in the copies of ‘Ananda Vikatan’ a weekly in the years of 1957 to 1958.
Artistic Direction & Choreography: ‘Nattuva Thilagam’ Mrs. Indira Manikam
