Dance of the Ages, Kochi

Crushed tomatoes, carrots and blended beets all neatly laid out on a counter…no it’s not a culinary escapade. In typical fashion, Kathakali dancers suit up for their performance, a unique characterization of dance forms across India with only male participants. The iconic green faces, loud headdresses and large skirts are complementary to the expressive eyes and quaint movements that lead you into a world of demon kings and young boys.
