A performance and introduction to the stunning Indian classical dance and theatre form called Kathakali.
Known as “A Warrior’s Dance” Kathakali is a powerful dance form that uses “mudras” to tell the stories of Hindu mythology.
We will welcome scholar Kaladharan Viswanath and veteran performer Manoj Kuttikat to demonstrate and discuss this art form.
This hour and a half event at the Ent Center for the Arts will introduce you to this incredible performance form.
Colorful and dramatic, Kathakali dates back to the 1600, when warriors dressed up and performed Indian myths in character to demonstrate their strength and dexterity.
It is the art for of India’s southern state, Kerala – which is famous for its preservation of classical Indian arts.
Kaladharan Viswanath is one of the greatest emissaries for the art form and he has brought with him Manoj Kuttikat, one of Kerala’s finest performers.
