Kathakali literally meaning "story-dance" is the pantomimic dance-drama of Malabar comparable to a great extent with the European ballet in the West with an additional advantage of having rich gestural code necessary to convey the theatrical pleasures to the spectator. This book is a detailed analysis of the dance and art of Kathakali, its origin, technique, the costume, make-up and the gestural code, with a separate chapter on "Evolution of Kerela's Art" by Krishna Chaitanya. This edition has been completely revised and enlarged and contains new set of illustrations to further facilitate understanding and appreciation of the Art. Printed Pages: 252 with b/w illustrations.
