Kakkarissi Natakom is a satirical dance-drama based on the puranic legends of Lord Siva and his consort Parvati when they assumed human forms as Kakkalan and Kakkathi - a nomadic tribe of fortune tellers. This is the only portion which is borrowed from Hindumythological legends and the rest of the story revolves around contemporary issues.The Kakkarissi Natakom Dance is therefore equally appreciated in the 21st century because of its ability to blend with the contemporary society.Kakkarissi Natakom Dance is one of the traditional dance forms of Kerala which blends the modern society and its issues with the Hindu Puranas at its background which surely makes it a class apart. The chief characters are Kakkalan, Kakkathi, Vetan, Velichappadu, Thampuraan and the ubiquitous Jester. The Dholak, Ganchira,Chenda and the Harmoniumprovide the background score.
