More about the theatre event

Kerala’s unique culture and traditions, coupled with its varied demography, have made Kerala one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Kathakali is one of the renowned indigenous art form from Kerala. It originated from Sanskrit drama and patronised by former Maharajas of Kerala. In Kathakali the male characters wear glittering round headwear and face painted with green or black colours. They wear folded long cloths painted with vibrant colours. This art form is performed in the twilight of traditional Kerala lamp known as ‘Nilavilakku‘ or ‘Attavilakku‘ and body movements of the actors are in tune with the lyrics known as ‘Kathakali padangal‘ sung by background singers accompanied by melom. Kathakali is organised to perform in this event.

The purpose of the event is to raise fund for the differently abled children of Trivandrum, the capital of Kerala.

The Kala Chethana Kathakali Company is credited with developing Kathakali in the UK through their hugely successful tours and educational work. The company invites you to join them on their 30th anniversary tour.

For anyone unfamiliar with Kathakali there is a short pre-show demonstration and a chance to see the make-up, view the costumes and meet the artists.
