THE KATHAKALI stage is as simple as it can be. No scenery is required as the actors describe everything by their mudras and facial expressions. At the front of the stage, which traditionally is an open space of ground or the forecourt of a Hindu temple, stands a large bell metal lamp from which two cotton wicks floating in coconut oil give out a mellow and exciting light.
