Yakshagana,one of the most illustrious traditional theatrical forms of South India, obviously finds its firm roots in the Natyasastra ofBharata. It is a profound and popular performing art of Karnataka. Especiallyits Northern School(Badagu Tittu) is known for its visual treat both in respect of dance andcostume. It emerges out as a complete theatrical form and makes a grandsynthesis of form and content in an aesthetically marvelous manner. 

Soloperformance in Yakshagana style is an entirely new and refreshingly originalinnovation in the classical dance-drama systems of India.Here the Natya (theatrical)form of the original art is kept intact and the Bhana / Bhanika (solo) dimensionis aesthetically developed.
