Kathakali artist: Action packed performance

Watching a Kathakali artist perform is always a delight where the artist adorning vivid colors and elaborately dress performs act of mythological plays without uttering a single word by using facial gestures.

But, wait, there is more coming. In the next post, I will cover what goes behind the stage in preparation of a Kathakali artist. It is really very interesting watching an artist getting ready for the show.

 

Kathakali  a major form of classical dance originated from Kerala. It is one of the oldest theatre forms in the world known for storytelling and expressing various emotions through language of gestures especially eyes to narrate tales and epics. Another prominent aspect of Kathakali is the elaborate make up code and use of distinct colors to  distinguish characters like green for virtuous.

When photographing people in street, I always consider myself lucky to catch picture of a happy man  especially when it is natural and spontaneous.

 

A smiling face is always welcome
