    The text is as important as the performance.

    In that performance 2 singers, standing at the back of the stage, did the VOCAL part, aside 2 drummers. Other participants don't speak a word. Their job is VISUAL, they dance, move & make jestures with all parts of body.

    Eateries: Nightlife

    by girikannat Updated Jun 13, 2003

    Usually life comes to an end by 9pm in the city.So the only activity that can be done is eat out. Some restaurants like Mascot, Luciya( both slightly costly). Can find some affordable eateries within walking distance from the central bus station. Hotel Asoka, managed by the Kerala State Tourism development Corporation is located very close to the beach of Kovalam. They provide good lodging and food.The rates are slightly higher.

    Dress Code: Wear anything comfortable and decent.

    The performers must be physicaly strong. They usually carry an heavy weight, on their head and all parts of the body.
    That's why most of them are men, acting male and female roles.

    Kathakali's remarkable repertoire of gestural vocabulary, collectively known as 'MUDRAS' , is amazingly capable of articulating all the subtle nuances of every conceivable human emotion.
