THEYYAM

Theyyam or Theyattam is a popular ritual dance of Malabar viz North Kerala. Kannur can rightly be termed as the birth place or womb of Theyyam. Theyyam is a corrupt form of Theyyam or God. It’s a unique combination of dance, music and also reflects the main features of a tribal culture. It’s a religion based ritual dance. The Theyyam performance has an aura of divine splendour as it’s accompanied by rituals and other devotional hymns. Its indeed an unprecedented experience to watch this dance symbolising the ultimate power. The impact is tremendous when the performer feels that for those moments he is the Supreme identifying himself as the aphorism in Jnana Yoga ; Aham Brahmasmi viz I am Brahmin. Its a moment of total synthesis. This will reinforce the total faith in the Supreme, as Jesus said in the Bible, "Faith can move ,mountains".

This folk art has a myth ; the age-old belief that Goodness destroys evil. Every Theyyam symbolises a holy purpose as declared by Lord Krishna in Bhagwad Gita.


KALARIPAYATTU

Kalaripayattu is the ancient martial art of the State. It is considered as the forerunner of all martial arts like Karate and Kung Fu. Rigorous physical training besides training in self discipline. The weapons used are the sword, dagger, short sticks and spears. The coordination of body and mind is given maximum importance.  Kalaripayattu has contributed to the traditional art and dance forms of Kerala namely Kathakali, Koodiyattam and Theyyam.

Kalarichikitsa : It’s given by the Gurukkal to the students who are devoted and versatile in learning Kalaripayattu.  Full body oil massage : Uzhichill and Pizhichal ; it’s used as aid to attain suppleness of the body, specially prepared medicated oils are also used.  Marmachikitsa : This is used for treating the injuries caused on the vital regions of the human body which may even lead to death. The knowledge of Marmas is very essential for effective treatment.

Mohiniyattam - The dance of enchantress

The first reference to Mohiniyattam is in Vyavaharamala composed by Mayamangalam
Narayanan Namboodiri in 1709 AD. Mohiniyattam’s movements are reminiscent of swaying palm trees and the undulating wavesof the ocean. A major landmark in the evolution of Mohiniyattam was the reign of Maharaja Swathi Tirunal in the 19th century. Just as every art form experiences its phases of revival and neglect, Mohiniyattam too emerged from an eclipsed state. The early years of the 20th century saw the renaissance of all the classical dance traditions of India. Meanwhile a parallel cultural revival was taking place in Kerala in 1935, the great poet Vallathol Narayana Menon established Kalamandalam to revive and popularize Mohiniyattam. Due to concerted efforts of dance researchers and the performers themselves, Mohiniyattam is today acknowledged as one of the most prominent dance forms of India. It has also found international recognition.



Bharathanatyam


Bharathanatyam is a classical dance form of South India, said to be originated in Thanjavoor of Tamil Nadu. It is one of the most subtle, sophisticated and graceful styles of dance art in the World. It was known as ‘Dasiyattam’, since performed by devadasies in temples of Tamil Nadu long ago.

The name Bharathanatyam is derived from three basic concepts of Bhava, Raaga and Thaala. It is one of the proudest possessions in our heritage, having survived for nearly 3000 years, almost intact in all the variegated splendor of the forms and moods, which it has gathered through the centuries. It is performed mostly as a solo dance. Bharathanatyam is perhaps the oldest among the dance styles of India. The music of Bharathanatyam is based on Carnatic classical music. The instruments used are Veena, Flute, Mridangam and Violin. The costume is pajama and jacket of Kanchipuram silk and Banaras silk. The dancer wears a lot of ornaments of shining stones on neck, ears, hands and head, jasmine garland in the hair and foot trinket with small bells. Bharathanatyam is a highly structured and scientific discipline and demands years of devoted study, before one can claim to have even a little mastery over it.


Kathakali

Kathakali literally meaning story-play, is a dance drama originated in the 17th Century in Kerala. Though Kathakali is only 30 years old, a great deal of enrichment and refinement has taken place in every aspect of its technique. Scholars are of opinion that Kathakali is the result of a fusion between all Indian theatre tradition represented by ‘Koodiyattam’ and the indigenous tradition of folk dance forms.

Kathakali is a dance drama in which a high degree of stylization is seen in the method of acting presentation, make-up and costuming. In olden days Kathakali performances mostly took place on a temple premises or at the house of the local land lord. The make-up and costuming is a very important factor of this dance drama. Such an elaborate system is rarely found elsewhere. A major part of the face make-up is done by the actor himself. However specially trained artists are entrusted to apply Chutty ( framing the face with white paper and rice paste). So this theater form is a combination of dance, music, percussion, acting and painting.

Oppana

Oppana is an exquisite folk art form performed traditionally among the Muslim community in Kerala. The song and dance programme is performed by females to entertain the bride and by males to entertain the bridegroom. Harmonium, Tabla and Gangra are the musical instruments used. The songs are based on the mappila pattu.

It is mostly performed at the wedding sessions and festivities of the Malabar Muslims. Maidens and young female relatives sing and dance around the bride, clapping their hands. Mappila songs are first sung by the leader and then repeated by the chorus. This gives Oppana dance a rhythm of folklore music. The themes are often teasing comments about the bride’s anticipated nuptial bliss. Oppana is a well recognized art form. Oppana is often presented as a stage item today. It is quite popular in the school and college youth festivals.
