Kathakali is formed in the ending part of 16 century and it is a form of ritual dance drama. This classical art form emerged from the ancient art forms called Krishnattom and Ramanattom. Kathakali means “story-telling by pantomime".The actors don’t speak - the performances are completely based on facial expressions, movements and gestures of the actors. Applying the Kathakali make-up is a slow transformation of the actors from mortal beings to immortal divinities and demons. This metamorphosis takes place in front of the audience and takes around 2 – 3 hours until the actors are fully costumed and painted. (Minimum 2 persons required. Not valid between December 15 to January 10)
