Kathakali actors prepare to go on stage at the Globe Theatre. The theatre is a replica of the original Globe, where Shakespeare's plays were performed 400 years ago. The Annette Leday Dance Company, an Indo-French collaboration of dancers, perform a Kathakali version of Shakespeare's King Lear. Kathakali is a centuries-old South Indian dance form in which vivid use of make-up, costume, and delicate eye and hand movements play an integral part.
