    Why this strange emphasis on Lear and Macavity and things so foreign?

    The same question put differently: wouldn’t it be fun and inspiring to see the same puppet and shadow theater turning out productions inspired by say the Panchatantra, the Jataka Tales, and other folk traditions (including what’s near and adjacent to Thekkambattu itself)?

    The Balinese, with a rich tradition in shadow theater, do a fabulous job of native productions. Can we see the Thekambattu team emulate them or are we still regurgitating what the English colonials deposited on our land and traditions over a half-century ago?

    More power to the Balinese, of course, for their indigenous productions; however the subjects chosen for an art-form ought to be purely at the discretion of the artist. Without external pressures to tow the native/ non-colonial or for that matter any sort of line!
