Katkatha is an amalgam of two Hindi words. Kat means wood and is derived from the word Katputli (puppetry). Katha means story and together they mean puppets and stories. Katkatha focuses on presenting visual narratives with objects and puppets.

The question of what is puppetry guides our journey.

Katkatha started as an association of like minded puppeteers in 1998. The group was formed with the support of The Foundation for Responsibility of HH Dalai Lama in New Delhi.
