Odissi Dance, a Tribute of Indian Artists

Odissi Dance a Tribute of Indian ArtistsIndian artists always participate in every implementation of the Bali Arts Festival (BAF) in Denpasar Art Center. Interestingly, every performance they present are always interesting and comes with their distinctive charm. Clatter of their footwork, sound of drums and melodious rhythm of flute accompany the fragrant waving silk scarf. Sweet and classical story is revealed through the intermittent, heaving and stomping movement of the dance.

Those charms also happened at the appearance of the dancers from the Indian Culture Center (ICC) in the Ksiraarnawa Building, Tuesday (Jun 18). Consul General of India, Mr. A.S. Takhi and some representatives of friendly countries existing in Bali were present on the performance of the Indian dance.
The art performance supported by the Indian Consul featured the Odissi Dance, namely a distinctive classical dance from the Odisha state in eastern India and had the origins related to temples. Expressions of the dancers looked so strong proving if they had been very well experienced. Movements of their hands contained full of meaning, so that the theme could be easily understood by the audience.

At the performance, the Odissi Dance was presented by Ms. Supriya Nayak. The rhythm, bhangis (torso movement) and mudras (hand gestures) were used in the dance with distinctive qualities. It highlighted the theme of love between Radha and Krishna as an effort to draw closer to the Lord to obtain true happiness.
Through the experience owned by the artist being accustomed to participating in festivals in many countries, the dancer could present an amazing artistic expression. Vocal accompaniment was made by Shri Prasanta (Kumar Behera), Mardala (Shri Prafulla Mangaraj), Bansuri (Shri Dhiraj Pandey), Sitar (Shri Rais Ahmed Khan) and supported by lighting arrangement by Shri Sharad Kulshreshtha.

Before the presentation of the Odissi Dance, it was begun with the opening dances such as Deva Stuthi Indian classical dance, Allarippu, Meera Bhajans & Kathak performed by the students of the Indian Culture Center (ICC) such as Linda Korinkova, Carola Salgado, Werdhi Adnyana, Vimal Jairaman, Shanti Purnama Dewi and Kaithiri Ramayah.
There was also Manggalacaran ‘Guru Vandana’ Dance presented by the dancers from Ashram Gandhi Puri such as Ni Nengah Puji Widiani, Ni Luh Ratna Dewi and I Gusti Ayu Dwi Astuti. (BTN/015)
