Kerala Kathakali Centre - Review
An incredible introduction to the amazing dance forms of Kerala, the Kathakali Centre makes for a cosy venue to showcase the impressive eye movements and colourful costumes that make the dance forms of Kerala so intriguing. A number of shows are performed on a daily basis and visitors can also gawk at the elaborate make-up techniques that make the dancers look so other-worldly.

Kerala Kathakali Centre Trips
The makeup application was interesting but could have skipped it but the introduction and demonstration of the various eye positions, facial expressions, hand gestures and all the meanings such subtle movements capture was simply fantastic. The musicians performing live with the dance were a joy to watch and listen to as well. What a pleasant way to spend an evening!
Absolutely fabulous musicians. Thoroughly enjoyed the music, very exciting and engaging. Terrific communication with e@ch other. Highly recommended.
Amazing place to watch a Kathakali performance. The ambience of the place sets the mood before the show. And you get the opportunity to watch them put the elaborate makeup before the show. The organisers even arrange a demonstration right before the show - a sort of 15-min crash course into understanding a Kathakali performance. They have a different story each day of the week, so you can go back for more. Am curious to attend some of the other things they offer...classical music, martial arts performances and yoga classes.
You could (a) watch the performance or (b) watch both the make up and then performance. Highly recommend the latter - and also allows you to get the best seats. You might want to swing by to get your tickets before coming back during show time.
Kerala kathakali centre is the best place to watch kalari and kathakali performance. Tickets cost around 350INR for 1.5 hr performance and at the end of the show, the martial art instructor educates the audience with basic self defense moves. Check the schedule and book in advance. Tickets for kathakali performance also includes viewing artists do their elaborate makeup prior to their performance.
