It took these Kathakali dancers an hour to prepare for their performance.

Making the paints by hand. Meticulously applying the intricate patterns to their faces.

Not only does it takes years to learn this dance form. Apparently it also takes about four years just to learn how to apply the facial paint correctly.

I often think back to this lovely evening at the dance centre…
