From stories to brightest make-up!
The Kathakali of Kerela never stops to amaze the audience with it's most prominent gestures of hands, food, excellent face expression and the eye dance!
The origin of this dance form comes out to be 17th century when the dance form was fully developed.
The colours play an important role in depicting the character and emotion like the character Ravana goes with ‘Tati’ (red) make-up, the colour code for women and monks is yellow and the ‘Minukku’ make-up of orange, saffron or yellow colour shows the modest female characters like Sita and Panchali.
Musical instruments like ‘Centa’ and ‘Maddalam’ are used with various scenes and musical arrangements like 'Cempata'.
