About The Wandering Kuravanji

The Kuravanji or Kuratti, a nomadic tribal fortune-teller, is a familiar figure in South Indian towns and a fixture in the Bharata Natyam dance repertoire. It is less well known that she is an important figure in South Indian literature in several languages and the central character in the Tamil Kuravanji Natakam, a dance drama genre that was all the rage in the kingdoms of the peninsula in the 18th and 19th centuries.
