Margi Vijayakumar in Kathakali


2006 NR

Enjoy a vivacious performance of one of the world's most dramatic art forms. A 400-year-old classical dance, Kathakali combines elements of ballet, opera, masque and pantomime to explore themes from two great Indian epics, &NFi;Ramayana&NFi_; and &NFi;Mahabharata&NFi_;. Members of the celebrated Margi Theatre in Thiruvananthapuram perform this historic dance, which is rich with dynamic music, colorful costumes, lively percussion, vibrant movement and meaningful text.
