About Kathakali Performance at Cochin Cultural Centre

Lose yourself in a world of gods, demons, and other mythical creatures during Kathakali. This dramatic classical dance form originated in Kerala in the far past. The artists get decked up in colorful costumes and intricate make-up and enact stories and legends of old with the accompaniment of drums, chengalam and elathalam. The Cochin Cultural Centre is very popular in the city for the promotion of traditional arts like Kathakali, Theyyam, Mohiniyattam etc. Plan an outing with your family to this famous center, which has won the state award for the best performing arts center. Sit back and watch the stories told to you in childhood come alive as masters put up spellbinding performances of Kathakali. What interests many people is that, if you manage to reach here an hour before the show begins, you can watch the artists applying make-up which is a performance by itself.

Pro Tip: Arrive one hour before the show to witness the intricate make-up of the artists.
