Kerala Kathakali

Kathakali is the most popular dance-drama of Kerala. This classical art form that evolved across the last 400 years combines facets of ballet, opera, masque and the pantomime. It is said to have evolved from other performing arts like Kootiyattam, Krishnanattam. The make up and costume of the players are unique and it requires years of rigorous training to attain complete control of the body and sensitivity to emotion so as to be able to render all its nuances through facial expressions and hand gestures. Kathakali has a literature of its own which explicates ideas and stories from the Indian epics and Puranas.
