Witness a repertoire of Odissi that will have concentrated focus on the pure physicality of the dance. The corporeality of the form, extending and elaborating interstices will be highlights and those spaces left for the creativity of the dancer that the conventions of Odissi permit.


The evening will start with a mangalacharan and will then veer away to a batu interspersed with new inventions, followed by a pallavi and an expression of abhinaya drawing on the work of the contemporary Tamil poet Cheran.


Performed by Meera Gurumurthy, Aparna Nambiar, Gayathri Gopal and Raka Maitra and accompanied by a Live Orchestra from Orissa.
