The greatest dance form “Kathakali” at Nattika
Kathakali a relatively recent performing art and one of the great artistic wonders of the world with a 400-year-old heritage, was staged at the nattika beach Ayurveda resort as part of our customary recreational activity for the guests . The performance was based on the mahabharatha episode – ‘Narakasuravadham, that evolves around the story of Narakasura, a vicious demon and Jayantha, the valorous son of Lord Indra (King of Gods).
The matchless quatrain’s and songs were rendered to a captivating music played by a competent team that included some prominent artists from the esteemed school of arts- Kalamandalam . The one-hour performance depicted some of the dramatic moments culminating in the assassination of the demon Nakrakunti. The curtain rose to a packed full crowd who remained glued through the entire session and had an astounding experience till the end.
