Kathakali is the most well known dance drama from the south Indian state of Kerala. The word Kathakali literally means "Story-Play". It is known for its large, elaborate makeup and costumes. The elaborate costumes of Kathakali have become the most recognised icon for Kerala.
The themes of the Kathakali are religious in nature. They typically deal with the Mahabarat, the Ramayana and the ancient scriptures known as the Puranas. This is performed in a text which is generally Sanskritised Malayalam. A Kathakali performance is a major social event. They generally start at dusk and go through out the night. Kathakali is usually performed only by men. Female characters are portrayed by men dressed in women's costume. However, in recent years, women have started to become Kathakali dancers. Kathakali has a long tradition. It dates back to the 17th century. It was given its present form by Mahakavi Vallathol Narayan Menon, who was the founder of the Kerala Kala Mandalam. The actors rely very heavily on hand gesture to convey the story. These hand gestures, known as mudra, are common through out much of classical Indian dance.
Kalaripayattu is an ancient form of martial art of Kerala dating back to almost 2000 years. It is from Kerala kalaripayattu martial art that other forms of martial arts were developed in China. This martial art derives its name from two words, "kalari" which means arena of the fighters and "payattu" which means practice. In ancient times, warriors used to tackle opponents by kalari payattu martial art of Kerala. Many times, conflicts between landlords and other chiefs were settled by swift attacks of kalaripayattu.
Kalaripayattu is not kicking and punching. It requires a unique synchronization of mind and body. Along with energy, there should be flexibility of the body and sharp focus of the mind. One should be aggressive but not angry. A person performing kalaripayattu needs to have agile muscles and for that, massage with ayurvedic oils is a must. Also, one should not go to the aggressive movements all at once. One should start slowly with yoga and other exercises that warm up the body and make it easier to perform the aggressive movements with swiftness and dexterity.
