What is “NAVARASA” ???
Indian performing arts employ a range of expressions and gestures to
communicate emotions and convey stories. Rasas, or emotions, are
very important aspects of dance-drama such as Kathakali. They
articulate not only the sentiment of the character, but also the reason
behind that emotion. The Natyashastra, an ancient Indian study of
performing arts, defines eight principal emotions, Sringaram, Hasyam,
Karunam, Roudram, Veeram, Bhayanakam, Bheebalsam and
Adbuthyam. The ninth one, Shantham was added later. 'These nine
emotions', or Navarasas form the foundation for expressing emotions in
Kerala's classical performing art forms.
The Navarasa Experience Tour Package, organized by Tourist Desk,
Kochi, provides you with a unique opportunity to experience these nine
emotions through a Ten-nights-and-Eleven-day journey across various
destinations of Kerala.
