The most hypnotic and spectacularly beautiful of Indian dance-dramas, Kathakali retells vibrant, entrancing stories from Hindu legend.
With gloriously lavish costumes, glowering mask-like make up and huge flamboyant head dresses the Kathakali dancers transform themselves into the devils, gods, ladies and sages of Indian mythology, stamping out their rhythms to the sound of traditional chenda drums and cymbals. Here, captivating dances flow into a stirring story whose compelling narrative echoes the traditional tale of Snow White.
