‘Kira Kozhambu’ is a storytelling-performance in Tamil based on folk tales by Ki Rajanarayanan. Very simple in form and light and humorous in content, this play can engage both children and adults alike. 3 performers take you on a wild journey through a kaleidoscope of stories featuring a self-important eagle, a confused chicken and a lucky snake amongst others. Kira Kozhambu has been one of Perch’s most popular plays and we are reviving it after 7 years in this, our 10th year. It is also a matter of great pleasure for us to revive this play for the 95th Birthday of the ever-youthful and effervescent Ki. Ra. Kira Kozhambu has so far been staged in Chennai, Pondicherry, Coimbatore, Bangalore, Tirupur, Avinashi and in Trivandrum, Kollam, Ernakulam and Thrissur in Kerala and has had a wonderful reception in all these places.
Costumes- Kaveri Lalchand, Original Folk tales- Ki Rajanarayanan
