Yakshagana

Hello:)
A week earlier I got a chance to watch a yakshagana performance in my Dad's office.











I loved the expression on each and every one of the artists there...:)
It was performed by the "Shri Anantha padhmanabha Dashanvathara yakshagana mandali,porduru" and they were kind enough to let me back stage too .







One of my major fascinations was the props that were used by the various artists




I wonder how they made their footwork seem so effortless..


And I wouldnt be doing any justice without mentioning that the best performer was the jumping joker :)

    Seems like badagu thittu.... Dakshina Kannada people usually perform Tenku thittu right?
