BACK IN THE UK

BACK IN THE UK.

We had a great time in Kerala working in the temples and seeing friends.

The performance in Killimangalam Temple was very special and reminded me of how Kathakali was 45 years ago. Held in a small temple with an audience of devoted people with good knowledge of Kathakali. The smell of the wooden beams, the burning coconut oil in the Vilikka [lamp]  and the sounds of the drums just blended the colours and acting together into a magnificent atmosphere of total theatre.

We are back in the UK and looking forward to delivering our heritage project in London kindly funded by the National Lottery.
