‘Living Traditions’ is our ongoing series showcasing folk traditions of different regions of India. This year, the focus is on Odisha, an Eastern state with prehistoric roots and rich cultural heritage. Mainly mountainous, the region is heavily forested with abundant natural resources, and varied flora and fauna. The ethnic diversity of the region is amply reflected in the variety of dance forms, textiles, visual and sculptural arts as well as numerous handicrafts. Over the two days, six well-known troupes will present two forms each of music, dance and folk theatre representing folk forms of three regions of Odisha: Balangir, Puri and Mayurbhanj. Presentation and narration will be in Hindi/English by Rakesh Tiwari.
