About The Event


The joy of making mask has been a cultural practice for humanity since the time of animism. Chhau means mask - the most essential element in the folk dance-drama from which it derives its name. Purulia Chhau is a theatrical dance, which is often referred to as a martial art form. The making of these masks is an independent art altogether. The masks have a frank, simple and bold look. 

This workshop will be a platform where you can bring out your hidden facets on a tactile form as creative expression. Participants can watch and interact with the Chhau artists – the traditional practitioners of Chhau mask making of Purulia in West bengal.
