Indian Cultural Centre will be organizing Odissi dance production ‘Anugamana – an ongoing journey’ by Odissi danseuses Leena Mohanty, Nritta Ganesh Manoharan and Daisygaran Vijayakumar at 6.30 pm on July 19 at Russian Cultural Centre, No 10 Independence Avenue Colombo 07.
Odissi is one of the pre-eminent classical dance forms of India which originated in the Hindu temples of the eastern coastal state of Odisha, India. This dance form includes themes from Vaishnavism and others associated with Hindu gods and goddesses like Shiva, Surya and Shakti.
Anugamana – the ongoing journey is an offering of Odissi Dance in the style of Guru Deba Prasad Das. His style of Odissi is known for its pristine qualities and immaculate compositions. His fascination for exploring and deriving inspiration from tribal dance movements gave Deba Prasad Das’s style a special vigour and verve.
