Odissi, one of the pre-eminent classical dance forms of India, originated in the Hindu temples of Orissa in eastern India. This classical dance form is celebrated around the world for its lyricism, sensuality, and its emphasis on ‘bhakti’, an attitude of devotion and surrender.
In The Dancing Line, a lecture demonstration, renowned visiting artist from Mumbai, Daksha Mashruwala, and her Bay Area disciple, Niveditha Ravishankar explore the relationship of Odissi dance with two related art forms, the Pattachitra painting, and the Temple sculptures in Orissa.
Paintings and sculptures come alive in dance and postures demonstrated by the performing artists.
