PSV Natyasangham

Art and healing found common ground and Arya Vaidya Sala facilitated a way of life for a large group of people that was in consonance with the Ayurvedic way of life - of fulfilment and of all round development.

Arya Vaidya Sala has ardently nurtured a long-standing relationship with cultural art forms like Kathakali, traditional theatre and literature. He founded a dramatics troupe which later became the world famous Kathakali troupe, the PSV Natyasangham in 1939 and has flourished under the benign care of Arya Vaidya Sala to reach its present stature of a Centre of national repute.

P.S.V. Natyasangham is a Centre for performing and teaching Kathakali, the classical theatre of Kerala and it became an integral part of the institution. The troupe is a group of eminent artists who stage Kathakali performances in India and Overseas.

By the end of Thirtees, Varier recognised the changing trends and appreciated the growing importance and inherent merit of Kathakali which was languishing then in public disregard. He established the Natyasangham with the aim of popularising this unique form of classical theatre by training professional artists and by organising performances for the public to view. He appointed master teachers and recruited talented students. Some of the all time greats like Pattikkantodi Ravunni Menon, Guru Kunchu Kurup, Kavalappara Narayanan Nair, Vazhenkata Kunchu Nair, Kalamandalam Neelakanthan Nambissan, Kottakkal Krishnankutty Nair, Kottakkal Kuttan Marar, Kottakkal Vasu Nedungadi and Kalamandalam Unnikrishna Kurup had been in the faculty of the Natyasangham. Some of the leading artists of today’s Kathakali stage are the products of the Natyasangham.

The Natyasangham has travelled widely and performed in major Cultural Centres of the country. It has also visited several European and Far Eastern countries like Germany, Switzerland, France, China, Korea and Indonesia.

P.S.V. Natyasangham is famous for its strict adherence to classical tenets of performance, talented artists, spectacular costumes and meticulous training. Apart from presenting the classical stories, Natyasangham has choreographed some new plays also, which have been well received by the knowledgeable viewers.

Today, Natyasangham has several important artistes as its members. It continues its success story as one of the most respected and popular Kathakali troupes in Kerala. The Natyasangham celebrated its 75th year in a befitting manner.
