Last Sunday (29 Mar 2009) I attended a workshop organized by Karnataka Yakshagana Academy at Yuga purusha Hall, Kinnigoli. Discussions at the seminar were mainly around body language, presentation, in Yakshgana Bharatnatyam, Kathakkali and Bhootakola art forms. Here is a glimpse of few facial expression demonstrated by this Kerala Kalamandalam artist in Kathakali.
As I was concentrating on photographing expression I did not bother to note down on what each expressions were. If you are interested in these expressions, they are from left to right
- tranquility (shaantha),
- surprise (adbhutha),
- disgust (bheebhatsya),
- 2 photos of fear (bhayaanaka) and
- courage (veera)
