Kathakali is a form of dance-drama that originated in Kerala. Extremely ritualised and dramatic, it dates back several centuries, and was as such recognised by UNESCO as part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The fascinating performances combine dance, rituals, music and drama. Sophisticated costumes and spectacular coded make-up – which require several hours to shape using rice paste – carry the spectator back to the Indian temple rituals of the 15th century, from which this dramatic style emanated. Originally the performances lasted throughout the night and retold the episodes of great Indian epics, the Mahabharata or the Ramayana, or periods of the life of Krishna.  Kalamandalam School is one of the largest ancient art schools in India. According to tradition, students live in the community with their masters in order to learn, in residence, all the subtleties and nuances of their art. The acting technique is indeed physically very demanding. Control of all facial expressions, looks and mudras (hand positioning) is based on concentration and energy canalisation methods drawn notably from kalaripyatt, the ancient Kerala martial art. The Kalamandalam School will perform “Balivadhom”, an excerpt from the Ramayana. A philosophical, mystical and mesmerising moment.
