Description

Nritya Pranidhana (Surrender to Dance) will feature Devaki Thomas & Tirthi Patnaik, both London-based dancers who aim to bring passion, excellence and reverie to the ancient art of Orissa's classical dance style Odissi. They are both senior students of Srimati Urbi Basu, a disciple of Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra & Smt Poushali Mukherjee.

This recital will feature 8 items from the traditional Odissi repertoire in duet and solo combinations. Pallavi's (pure dance) and Abhinaya (story-telling) peices will be presented.
