It's definetly a must have when you are in fort cochin! We were very facinated by the coulours and the musik and the whole Theatre. We loved it!!
Always amaze me how well they performed with such heavy dresses and do worship of god in the form of dance, representing true Indian culture and art.
It is indeed a rare art form. The amount of preparation in make up of artists is huge. Painstakingly and meticulously each color is applied on face one after the other. The dance form has lot of mudras which are expressed by hands. It is a must watch.
To enjoy it you must be part of it. Just a synopsis of the dance is displayed and the singing tells you the story. Its a bit slow and boring to watch. You wont be missing on anything. I recommend watching the traditional Indian dance instead and the martial arts show.
I have been forced to watch this in alappuzha kalarcode temple and i am glad i saw it. It is one of the most incredible performance in a stage where the didcation of actors paid of. i would recommend you to watch it but it will be better if you are with someone who likes and already watch one before.
