Odissi recital by Ratikant Mohapatra’s Srjan
About Srjan: Srjan was founded in 1993 by the eminent Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra and has since evolved into a premier Odissi dance institute of India. Srjan symbolises Guruji’s humble offering of the classicism of Odissi dance, music & percussion to the rich national ethos of India. Today, a vital aspect of Srjan’s function is dance teaching, which is patterned after the ancient “Gurukul” system; the students live in the Guru’s home & the constant interaction with the teacher & each other helps them to absorb the total ambience of the time – honoured heritage. Guruji’s rigorous teaching method has been faithfully adopted by his son, Ratikant Mohapatra, who has, all along, ably and imaginatively assisted this great & dedicated teacher in imparting the knowledge & technique of the Odissi dance heritage.
For Nakshatra 2015 Srjan presented a bouquet of some of the finest choreographies of the Odissi dance exponent and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee Ratikant Mohapatra which inspired many to experiment with Odissi choreography keeping to the traditional framework.
