Description

Nepathya is a troupe of dancers and musicians from the state of Kerala in southwest India. They perform in the classical Sanskrit tradition known as kudiyattam, a living tradition that has continued for centuries. Such performances are typically made over many nights; here they will share with Chicago a portion of Drama of the Ring. The Nepathya troupe has travelled the world, offering audiences an astonishing visual and musical experience, with rich costumes, intricate movement and accompaniment, and deeply moving narratives.
