Nina bali....

        Ninabali is the vernacular folk theatre form of Thalassery. Members of three ‘Tharavadus’ in Thalassery, Ponnyam and Paral are the main performers of this art form. Its story is based on the battle between ‘Bhadrakali’ and ‘Dharikan’. The death of Dharikan and later the rebirth are well narrated in this folk theatre form. The success of truth and failure of evil are exulted. This theatre form is well marked by its strong and unique way of presentation in Kerala theatre scenario.
