Kathakali: The Vivid Dance Drama of Kerala

Step into the World of Epic Storytelling with Kathakali

Kathakali, Kerala’s hallmark classical dance-drama, is a symphony of dramatic storytelling, vibrant costumes, and dynamic movements. This traditional art form, which dates back to the 17th century, is a unique blend of dance, music, and acting, and portrays stories from the Hindu epics Mahabharata and Ramayana.
