Kathakali and Theyam
Internationally renowned artists from India capture the magic of South India with their stunning performances. Kathakali (story dance) is highly visual, rich with emotion, character, facial expression and vibrant drumming. It is a classical dance drama which originated over 500 years ago and is one of the most visual forms of world theatre. The elaborate make up and costumes require six hours preparation for a magnificent transformation of the performers into mythological creatures. This is rare opportunity to see a new story specially created for Kathakali preceded by the Theyam ritual (performed for the prosperity of the village).
