Kuchipudi Dance Costumes are designed with beautiful pallu in front of the costume. The Kuchipudi Dance Dress color is mostly white with two-line golden borders and patterns rounded off by enchanting zari work set up in diverse colors. This is further enhanced by a long pleat in the centre with a border and a back katcham. Kuchipudi today is performed either as a solo or a group presentation, but historically it was performed as a dance drama, with several dancers taking different roles. The themes are mostly derived form the scriptures and mythology, and the portrayal of certain characters is a central motif of this dance form.   The Erasing Borders festival of Indian dance downtown included demonstrations of Kathakali, Odissi and Kuchipudi by Guru Radha Mohanan & Troupe and others.
