Watch a Kathakali Performance
Enjoy a classical Indian dance drama which originated in Kerala in the 17th Century. Famous for its elaborate costumes and even more over-the-top characters, it offers a wonderful nights' entertainment along with music and percussion.
Kathakali is Kerala’s very own classical dance-drama, which combines facets of ballet, opera, masque and the pantomime. Kathakali explicates ideas and stories from the Indian epics and other story books. Presented in the temple precincts after dusk falls, Kathakali is heralded by the Kelikottu or the beating of drums and to the accompaniment of the Chengila (gong). If of interest, you can go a little early to watch the impressive make up being done, which is considered to be a full-blown art in itself and is regarded as important as the dance-drama.
