The Set Up: Kapila Venu is the 7th installment in a series of 7 full-length dances that invests in “unknowing”. Initiated in 2012, each installment launches with “American contemporary” artists meeting a “master” of an existent form. This installment began in Kerala, India with Kapila Venu, Kutiyattam practitioner and disciple of the legendary Kutiyattam maestro Guru Ammannur Madhava Chakyar.
