SPIC MACAY Hong Kong brings you Ottan Thullal – With its roots in the 1700s, this amazing art-form comes from the beautiful state of Kerala in South India. Inspired by legend and mythology but comprised of contemporary story lines, the rhythmic dance elements are orchestrated with boisterous energy. Impressive costumes, colourful crowns and makeup further enliven the atmosphere. Sprinkled with humor, satire, wit and ongoing audience interaction, this inspired act will take your breath away – easily transcending any language barrier. A simple story line would be performed at each venue by legendary Guru S P Mohan Krishnan.

SPIC MACAY - Ottan Thullal

The dancer sings the lines. These lines are repeated by the accompanying artists while the dancer acts them out.The moral of the story is highlighted at the conclusion. The performance finishes with the “Mangalam” a combination of song, dance and “kalasam” ( a sequence of steps) as paying respects to the gods and thanking them.
