Abhinaya Dance Company & Guru Shradha

Guru Shradha: An Enchanting Odissi Odyssey. Odissi dance, from the state of Odisha in eastern India, is one of the oldest surviving Indian dance forms. Its unique captivating grace is expressed through the juxtaposition of fluid torso movements, strong stamping footwork, and poses evoking temple dance sculptures. An Enchanting Odissi Odyssey takes the audience through a spiritual journey of Odissi’s repertoire pieces showcasing contemporary and traditional choreography revealing a tapestry of its devotional, emotive, and intricate dance performed to haunting music. Vakratunda and Jaya Mahesha will be performed by Guru Shradha company dancers; founder-director Niharika Mohanty will be featured in Pallavi Abhinaya Dance Company of San Jose: Stories of Justice (2018, San Francisco Premiere). Stories of Justice explores stories of resistance, social justice, and resilience. Abhinaya will tell these stories by employing the stylistic vocabulary of Bharatanatyam, a dance form that originated in the Hindu temples of India. Stories of Justice will examine the non-violent resistance strategies of Martin Luther King, Jr. to demonstrate that the fight for social justice is ongoing and that past struggles provide lessons that enable us to confront our current problems. The dancers will dramatically portray this and other key protests in his life, where he emphasized the principle of non-violence deriving inspiration from Mahatma Gandhi’s struggles in India.
