Organizing a seminar-cum-performance by Rupashree Kalamandir, Puri on 19.6.2010 at Utkal Sangit Mahavidyalaya, Bhubaneswar.

The traditional dace form MAHARI dates back to the glorious tradition of lord Jagannath.This form of dance was recognized during the era of King Chudaganga Deva 1067 a.d to 187 a.d. A MAHARI dancer’s life was completely devoted to the service of lord Jagannath and this is the reason why they are called as MAHARI, i.e. MAHAN-NARI – a very distinguished woman. Initially MAHARIS were appointed in Jagannath temple to worship & entertain the deities through their mesmerising dance. The journey of MAHARI dance from temple premises to theatre was possible due to the tireless and selfless effort of some dedicated gurus over several years. It was an ultimate dream of Adiguru Pankaj Charan Das to keep the MAHARI tradition alive in the form of Odissi.

Rupashree Mohapatra is a celebrated dancer, who has kept the MAHARI form alive and performed all over India & abroad for last 25 years. She has unique style of dance that keeps the expression alive.

To keep this form of art alive, we are organizing a seminar-cum-performance by Rupashree Kalamandir, Puri on 19.6.2010 at Utkal Sangit Mahavidyalaya, Bhubaneswar.
