Odissi or Orissi is one of the pre-eminent classical dance forms of India which originated in the Hindu temples of the eastern coastal state of Odisha in India. Odissi is traditionally a dance-drama genre of performance art, where the artist(s) and musicians play out a mythical story, a spiritual message or devotional poem from the Hindu texts, using symbolic costumes,body movement, abhinaya (expressions) and mudras (gestures and sign language) set out in ancient Sanskrit literature Its theoretical base trace back to ‘Natya Shastra’, the ancient Sanskrit Hindu text on the performing arts.
EMBODYING TEMPLE SCULPTURES
The 13th c. masterpiece of architecture, Konark temple, is one of India’s marvellous heritage monuments. Its sculptures celebrate music and dance, as they play musical instruments and dance joyously, trapped in stone. Are there beautiful sculptures embodied within us, finding movement in dance? Exploring the horizontal and vertical planes within us, the curves of temple sculptures, their centre of energy, the workshop is a chance to find the poetry of sculptures within.
