In this intensive, students will learn holistically from veteran experts in the field and also from locally renowned artists/ educators. Participants will work in a studio setting and learn from multiple teachers focusing on Body Conditioning, Technique, Choreography, Theory, and History. Students will be categorized into groups depending upon their exposure to the form. There will be opportunities to take masterclasses from multiple teachers. Besides Odissi repertory, there will also be panel discussions, book talks, and research presentations focusing on classical Indian dance and the study of an emerging movement in the field of Indian classical dance called “NavaPallava” that promotes promising soloists between the age groups of 25 – 40. Artists chosen under these banners will be featured during the daily Evening Laboratory sessions.
Evening performance labs will be open and free to the public and UNC Charlotte LBST students. Click here for a schedule of events.
This event is a continuation of the Odissi International Series pioneered by dance critic/ scholar Shyamhari Chakra in 2009.
