All Dressed and Ready ..... and Dancing !!

    Newer Older

    A dancer expresses a range of emotions at a demonstrative Kathakali performance.
    This is a costume drama enacted in Kerala which tells stories only by the usage of hand and finger movements and facial expressions.

    It is a tough art form to master and requres immense physical control and training for 9-10 years to achieve a modicum of decent performance.

    The dancer is always a man. He chose to demonstrate a few expressions in his gaily costume at the beautifully located Taj Malabar hotel in Cochin, India
