KATHAKALI

Kathakali, is one of the major form of classical Indian dance. it is a "story play'' genre of art, but one distinguished by elaborately colourful make-up, costume and face masks the traditional male actors wear. A Kathakali performance, like all classical dance arts of India, synthesizes music, vocal performers, choreography and hand and facial gestures together to express ideas. Traditionally the name of this dance form was deduced by joining two words, ‘Katha’ and ‘Kali’ where ‘Katha’ in Sanskrit means a traditional tale or story and ‘Kali’ derived from ‘Kala’ refers to art and performance. You can find this piece of art at Kunjappo's Kitchen, Bangalore.

THEYYAM

Theyyam, is a popular ritual form of worship of North Malabar in Kerala, India, predominant in the Kolathunadu area and also in South Canara and Kodagu of Karnataka as a living cult with several thousand-year-old traditions, rituals and customs. There are over 400 separate Theyyams, each with their own music, style and choreography. The most prominent among these are Raktha Chamundi, Kari Chamundi, Muchilottu Bhagavathi, Wayanadu Kulaven, Gulikan and Pottan. The performers of Theyyam belong to the lower class community. the people of these districts consider Theyyam as a channel to God and they thus seek blessings from Theyyam.  It is a form of resistance, symbolizing goodness that would wipe out the social evils in the community. The highlight paradigm of this design was the smudge below the face which defines the final outcome of this piece. The aim of this art was to give a traditional approach that gives a unique definition to this cultural form of art.

BHARATANATYAM

Bharatanatyam, is the principal of the main classical dance styles of India. Bharatanatyam includes a specific list of procedures, all performed by one dancer. It serves the expression of Hindu religious themes and devotions. This was a challenging piece giving all due precision to its detailing of a women doing a Bharatanatyam pose. The transcendence of the face with jewelry is a complicated work with the dimensions of the eyes giving justice to the national form of art.
