Yakshagana!

Yakshagana!
After our show today, there was a Yakshagana performance and this was taken backstage where the Yakshagana artistes were getting ready to go up on stage.

These guys take a LOT of trouble to get their makeup and costume perfectly right before their performance. Sometimes, it takes close to 3 hours for the whole group to get ready! They then have a prayer to the diety before they go on stage for the show.

This guy was just standing there and looking at me and I started clicking away and he just held his stare! Made for a great photograph 🙂
