Kala Sangam is delighted to welcome the Kala Chethena Kathakali Company back to Bradford, with another opportunity to see superb international artists from Kerala in India to perform this legendary art form.

With a story similar to Snow White, this performance is perfect for families. Featuring live music, Kathakali uses drama, dance, costumes and make-up to create one of the most visually exciting and powerful forms of theatre in the world.

For audiences unfamiliar with Kathakali, there is a rare opportunity to see a free live make-up demonstration 4-5pm as the performers bring their colourful characters to life, followed by a free fun dance and music workshop where families of all ages can learn the moves of Kathakali!

Demonstration and workshop tickets can be booked for free when purchasing tickets, visit www.kalasangam.org/box-office/kathakali/  

Kala Sangam is an intercultural arts hub based in the heart of Bradford city centre which reflects the diversity of contemporary Britain through the work it presents, the artists it supports and the communities it engages.

In addition to the company’s two performance programmes a year, Kala Sangam delivers outreach activity in schools and communities across Bradford and throughout the country, as well as delivering classes and workshops in a number of artforms.
