"Kutiyattam is an artistic tradition of Kerala that goes beyond 2000 years. It is the only ancient form of Sanskrit theatre in the world which has kept alive its vibrant tradition till date. Kutiyattam is usually performed in a Koothambalam, which is a specially designed theatre attached to major temples. Balivadham is an eventful part of the epic Ramayana. Lord Surya's (Sun God) charioteer Aruna who assumes the form of a woman, begets a child from Lord Indra (Lord of Heaven) called Bali, and one from Lord Surya (Sun God) called Sugriva. Bali who becomes the King of Kishkinta has a misunderstanding with Sugriva leading to sibling rivalry. Ruma, Sugivra's wife is forced to become Bali's consort. Sugivra, fearing Bali, takes refuges atop the Rissyamukha Mountains, where Bali cannot enter owing to a curse from the Sage Mathanga. Sugriva along with trusted ministers like Hanuman meet Sri Ramaa, the incarnation of Lord Vishnu and offer their help to kill the demon king Ravana and to rescue Sita, the beloved wife of Rama. In return for Sugriva's favour, Rama helps Sugriva confront Bali in a battle and is killed by Rama's arrow."--Publisher website
