Performing arts of Kerala by Pankaj Shah( Book )

8 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Unlike other parts of India, Kerala's geographic location in the extreme south-west protected it from extraneous influences allowing its many splendoured arts to continue and evolve with a certain insularity. Besides the world-renowned Kathakali, Kerala boasts of the oldest form of Sanskrit theatre, Kootiattam; ritual dances where blood sacrifices are still prevalent; masked and trance performances where dancers wear headgear more than 5 metres high; the most ancient martial arts technique, Kalaripayattu, and many other little-known forms of dance, war and ritual. In a society where every act is codified and every colour symbolic, it needs a lifetime to understand the intricacies and the layers of meaning and sophistication that make up the culture of region. In this book, Kerala's many art and ritual forms are introduced by eminent scholars. Stunning colour visuals, many of rites never seen outside the temple, allow, for the first time, a comparative look into the intricacies of style, make-up, adornments and costumes, making this book a first-ever introduction to the mysterious arts of Kerala

While the history of the classical Indian dance form, Bharatnatyam spans over centuries, an alternative history of the evolution of this traditional temple dance can also be mapped through the contribution of Mrinalini Sarabhai, a pioneer amongst the contemporary Indian dancers.
