Vivid Kathakkali Dancers in Kerala (WPC: Vivid)

The photos were taken at a Kathakkali dance performance at Fort Cochin in the Indian State of Kerala. Vibrant natural colours used as facial makeup. Prior to the performance elaborate makeup for the  dancers were done in front of the audience. Bravo to the makeup artists.
