Theyyam – Worshiping Heroes and Ancestral Spirits

Theyyam, also known as Kaliyattam, is the oldest ritualistic temple art form in India, and one of the most spectacular in its artistry and symbolism. Dressed in magnificent costumes and tall headgear, the dancers dance to repel evil spirits and transport you into another world through mime, dance, and music.
