Event Details

A 40-year-long association with Odissi, including years of training and experience with his father and guru, Kelucharan Mohapatra, has left its unique imprint on Ratikant Mohapatra. Having grown up surrounded by music and dance, he has carved an enviable niche for himself as a dancer, percussionist, teacher, choreographer and archivist. As Director of Srjan (Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra Odissi Nrityabasa), he has single-handedly created a world-class dance institute, attracting students from all over the globe for a comprehensive and dedicated learning methodology of Odissi.

Over the years, Mohapatra has won several awards including the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for his contribution to Odissi. In his role as a choreographer, he has conceived more than 67 original works, characterised by neoclassical choreographic innovations, attractive musical arrangements, experimental lighting and stagecraft, all within the boundaries of the idiom of Odissi. His uncompromising attention to detail, demand for perfection and high level of professionalism have established him as a leading force in the art form as he effortlessly carries forward the timeless legacy of his father and guru.
