This traditional dance form of India is the specialty of Kerala and is performed by very skilled professional artists. The elaborate costumes, stunning makeup, expressions, and movements tell stories and tales. The tiniest of movements of the eyebrows, lips, eyes, chin, cheeks and nose convey so many emotions. The costumes and makeup are used to portray characters, roles and qualities and also to represent demons, Gods, humans, etc. This pure dance form involves years of training, and it takes a lot of skill for the artists to express so much without talking.
