Explore the ancient Indian Odissi temple dance through vibrant performances and workshops by Amrita Choudhury. Hailing from the Mahari tradition of Odissi, Amrita concentrates on the importance of the ancient culture & history through her creative Odissi performances. Her guru Chittaranjan Achareya along with the last surviving Mahari (temple dancer in the Jagannath temple, Puri) Guru Sashimani Mahari, have inspired her to go back to the true roots of Odissi and bring this art form to a contemporary setting today for the performance arts.
