The Indian traditional dance form Kathakali is related to the storytelling aspect of this art form. In this case, it’s a Kerala-based dance drama. ‘Kathakali,’ like other classical Indian dance forms, uses outstanding footwork and facial and hand gestures to tell a story, all accompanied by beautiful music and vocal performances. Nevertheless, the dancers’ elaborate and colourful make-up, unique face masks, and costumes set them apart from the competition, as do their mannerisms, which pay homage to the region’s long-standing traditions in martial arts and athletics. Because it originated in Hindu courts and theatres rather than Hindu temples and monasteries, this genre of Indian classical dance is traditionally performed by male dancers. ‘Natya Shastra’, an ancient Sanskrit Hindu scripture, is the primary source of traditional dance’s core
components and distinctive qualities. Our experience offers an in-depth look at the art form which includes observing the artists right from the initial stage of Make-Up to presentation of an elaborate folk tale.
Kerala’s martial art form, Kalaripayattu, is well-known worldwide. Most of Kerala’s art forms are influenced by Kalaripayattu. In the past kalaris (combat arena or battle field) formed an integral part of the lives of ordinary citizens. Having no gender bias, boys and girls of all ages would be taken to the Kalaris for practice in their early years. The status and sway of Kalaris shifted along with the social climate.
For example, there is meipayattu (physical training), vadipayattu (fighting with sticks or swords), valpayattu (fighting with knives), and verumkaiprayoga (fighting with brooms) (bare hand exercise).
At Greenix, one gets to experience the legendary martial art form in all its glory with exercises being presented by trained fighters. The audience will also get a deeper understanding of the techniques used to showcase this ancient practice.
