Kathakali is probably the most fascinating traditional performing art form in India's rich cultural pageant. The special edition explores this uniquely interpretative dance governed by dramatic dynamics, including an elaborately defined code of body kinetics, which combine with beautifully eloquent gestural representation.Lavishly illustrated with visuals that express a powerful language all their own, the book is an invaluable addition to the connoisseur's collection.
