What to Expect
See the famous Kathakali dance, a must-see on a visit to Kochi, with this viewing, which includes dinner.

The classical dance of Kerala, Kathakali means “story play.” It is a unique blend of dance, music and acting, and it tells stories from the Indian epics. It is a stylized art form where dancer wears a painted face and mimes using animated hand gestures and facial expressions.

A Kathakali performance begins with the Kelikottu, calling the audience to attention followed by the Todayam when characters invoke the blessings of the gods. Purappadu comes after this which is a pure Nritya piece. In Melappada, the musicians and drummers entertain the audience. All remaining characters make their debut in Tiranokku.
