Kutiyattam: Sanskrit Theater of India on CD-ROM offers an interactive, multimedia experience of what may be the world's oldest surviving genre of theater. Kutiyattam, which dates back to the tenth century C.E., is closely associated with Hindu temple life and religious ritual. Actors in elaborate costume and makeup use a gestural language, chanted speech, and exaggerated facial and eye expressions to perform the various roles of mythological characters, gods, and demons. They are accompanied by musicians playing instruments unique to the art. The CD-ROM presentation conveys textual and visual information on the acting, costume, makeup, music, and architecture of kutiyattam; audio and video clips of kutiyattam performance and training; and an extensive scholarly bibliography.
