The dance characterized by a unique feature its staunch distance from worldly reality selects to include within its scope only the most supernatural and mythological aspects concerning the lives and affairs of celestial beings deities demons and sages. An elaborately defined code of body kinetics combined with beautifully eloquent hand gestures called mudras are enhanced by stylized make up and costumes to provide the several appropriate symbolic nuances typifying Kathakali. The artiste besides makes little attempt to internalize the emotions of the character he portrays. Instead he enlivens his performance through the dimension of life breath or Prana in Sattwikabhinaya and infuses soul into his performance through rasabhinaya or emotional acting. Exaggerated and extravagant his histrionics enunciate a powerful language all their own creating as poetic field of expression that needs prodigious imagination on the part of the viewer to fully appreciate a performance. This double volume comprehensively explores the interpretative medium detailing such fascinating stage aspects as Aharya and Angikabhinaya along with an intricate pattern of music and rhythmics employed in Kathakali. Renowned scholars and performers additionally describe the textual sources for performances discuss reputed Kathakali institutes and outline the rigours of the disciplined training routine involved before a student makes his debut as a full fledged dancer. A rare insight into what is probably the most compelling art form. 204 pp. Seller Inventory # 73822
