    Odissi dance performance
    20-22 minutes including announcements

  • Exploring the Odissi Spirit will be a pure Odissi based dance performance in open spaces in Little India that interacts and responds to the space around us. This performance uses the visuals of Odissi dance and sound of Odisha music to explore its own surroundings (lights, shadow, space, audience etc) and create the imagery.
