Nicole and I decided to take a trip to the theatre the other day. The show was pegged to be a Kathakali performance, which is the classic Kerelan dance theatre that has been performed for centuries. Intrigued as to what was on offer we ended up in a small building tucked down a back street, sat alongside about ten locals who had also turned up for the show.

What followed was pretty amazing and certainly not what I had in mind. See below for some video I took of the performance.

Afterwards we looked into other shows and booked ourselves into a traditional martial arts show for the following night when we were due to move to Fort Cochin on the west of the city.
