Kathakali is a dance form from Kerala, India, telling the stories of the Hindu gods. In heavy, elaborate costumes and make-up, the characters are played exclusively by men, accompanied by drums and a storyteller. Hand gestures and facial expressions play an important role. Beginning with the make-up procedure of the male character, this slide show focuses on the expressions of the female character.
