Girija Devi Kalamandalam  Kutiyattam and Nangiarkoothu artist Profile

A Kutiyattam and Nangiarkoothu artiste par excellence, Kalamandalam Girija charted out a journey through the portals of a caste-ridden art form with conviction.

An artiste endowed with grace, dignity and compelling presence on stage; a genial and warm personality off stage, Kalamandalam Girija is India’s leading performer of Kutiyattam and Nangiarkoothu. Not an extra flicker of the eyes, not a single unwanted twitch of a muscle; with poise in her carriage and a refined and yet a powerful technique of acting, Girija can cast a spell on the spectator.

In 1971, Girija, who is not from the Nangiar community, joined the Kerala Kalamandalam as a student of Kutiyattam and learnt under Guru Paimkulam Rama Chakyar, one of the legendary artistes who took Kutiyattam and the Koothu outside the temple and also for the first time abroad.

She is known for her roles with her guru Paimkulam Rama Chakyar; the farce Bhagavadajjukam holds a special place in the spectator’s mind, in which she excels as the courtesan Vasanthasena and also as “Lalitha” in Shurpanakham.
