theyyam ceremony is hold from 6pm till 11am.
it takes all the night and all the village is in the temple.
they eat, sleep and talk, in the morning they go to consult the “god”
it’s in the area of KANNUR we have seen 4 differents theyyam.
you need a local guide to go to the place, alone it is impossible to find or see.
to prepair the theyyam it takes hours and hours.
they get into a kind of “trance”or “delirum” to be able to stay minutes inside of the fire.
that’s why i called it theyyam – indian culture and other religiouse stuff.
for me it’s more other stuff than real religion for me, a kind of “freak out” moment.
at COCHIN we saw on the beach the fighters of KALAMANDALAM
and the dansers of KATHAKALI at KANNUR
a very nice and interesting trip with photographes du monde
with our guide christophe boisvieux
