The artists use gestures to convey emotions and entire stories. Usually enacting themes and stories from two of India’s best loved epics, the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, the performance is visually arresting, extremely graceful and magnificent in execution.

Your hotel in Cochin
You will be picked up from your hotel and travel in an air-conditioned vehicle to the venue to watch a mesmerising Kathakali performance. Let the magic of this unique art form envelope you as you watch the emotions displayed by the performing artistes. One of the most interesting aspects of Kathakali is its elaborate make-up code. The dance-drama is arresting because of its elaborate get-up as much as the theme – stories from the epics - and its execution. The artistes wear flamboyant costumes and use a highly developed language of gestures to convey entire sentences and stories. The body movements and footwork are very rigorous. One of the highlights of this tour will be that you will get to watch the artistes prepare for the performance. Watch them put on their elaborate make up and masks which is as arresting as the performance! After the show, you will be dropped back to your hotel where the tour ends.
