Profiles - Odissi

Odissi traces its origins to the ritual dances performed in the temples of ancient northern India. The quintessence of Odissi, as a dance form, is in its sculpturesque quality. Boston based Odissi exponent Mouli Pal is considered an enchantress on stage due to her breathtakingly captivating performances radiating with lyrical grace and intensity of emotions.
Odisha, on the eastern sea coast of India, is the home of Odissi, one of the many forms of Indian classical dance. Sensuous and lyrical, Odissi is a dance of love and passion touching on the divine and the human, the sublime and the mundane. Jayashree Mohapatra nurtures the ambition to bring refreshing enthusiasm into original Odissi culture and creating a hew horizon in this field.
