Odissi Dance at The Yellow in Wembley Park





Odissi Sandhya

Join The Yellow and Gairika Mathur for Odissi Sandhya.... an evening of enchanting Odissi Dance.

Ever wondered what it would be like to breathe life into sculptures and see them dance to the mystical melodies of East India? This evening, you will be a witness to this splendour, when Gairika Mathur along with her students will bring to stage the magical beauty of Odissi.

Born & nurtured in the temples of Odisha, Odissi dance is known for its fluid grace, sculptural sensuality & deep spirituality. Initially performed in the temple of Lord Jagannath in Odisha as a form of worship & meditation, the living tradition of Odissi has been perpetuated over the centuries by the Maharis (devdasis from Odisha) & the Gotipuas (young boy dancers dressed as girls). Under the aesthetic depth of Odissi dance, lies its essence of spirituality and the quest for realisation of the Divine. The spiritual elevation & the emotional depth, help the dancer rise from mundane worries of the world, and the joy & bliss one gets, as if he/she is one with the art and one with the Divine!

The event promises an enchanting evening in store for all art lovers when the dancers bring the beauty and elegance of Odissi dance to viewers’ delight.
