“Definitely worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2013

My boyfriend and I went there as part of our Kerala trip. Although it is difficult to understand (only complicated mimes) the make up and costumes are just amazing and impressive. A great job is done, and the price is low (250 rupees per person). A little bit long, but a nice cultural experience which we recommend.

“An Audio Visual Delight...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 31, 2013

I had it on my mind for quite a long time & my Kerala Trip would not have been complete without it. We went there a bit early to see the make-up & prep work. I must say that it simply is a magical experience. I have always appreciated genuine art & culture in all its forms & this one is just spectacular.

These guys are thorough professionals & have kept the folklore alive. I pity those who don't get it - next time you are in Fort Kochi & have the urge to watch a movie or go to a restaurent - give it a miss & rather visit the Kerala Kathakali Centre. You'll love it!

“Superb. A must for everyone interested in the arts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

The experience was wonderful. You get to see how they put the make-up on and an insight into what a Kathakali is all about. Well worth the money and a great evening.

“A performance and then some!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2013

Watching the performers apply their make-up before the show was interesting in itself. When one of the performers fell asleep and started snoring while part of his mask was being glued to his face was an unexpected joy :)

The performance itself was really interesting. Like that they show a different part of the story each evening. Great price!
