Chavittunatakam is a 16th century maritime dance drama from Kerala. A cosmopolitan art, this performance derives its stories from the Holy Roman Empire, written in an early form of Malayalam (Praak Malayalam) denoting Senthamil and Pidgin Latin words, performed by, of and for the Latin Catholics. Latin Catholics are the low-caste—predominantly fishermen—Christian converts scattered along the 560 km coastal line of Kerala. The drama was developed by the Portuguese missionaries to impart a cultural identity and teach the religious customs as approved by the Roman papacy to the newly converted Catholics. This art has now shed its religious identity and has moved to the new realms of theatre, stories and performance. This module carries an overview, a short documentary, quick facts, bibliography and a shared video documentation of students' performance at the 58th State School Annual Festival.
