Sujata to perform in city

Trividya Peetam, a charitable foundation in the promotion of performing artiste and art teachers is bringing in authentic Odissi by Sujata Mohapatra, the illustrious daughter-in-law of Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, one of the pioneers of Odissi classical dance tradition. Sujata's strength lies in imbibing the technical perfection with an inherent grace and above all total involvement in her art. Her internalisation of the roles she dons as she dances has enslaved her audience both at home and abroad. An epitome of elegance and perfection in execution of nritta and nritya, Sujata Mohapatra has won wide acclaim and awards at many a dance festival. She presently runs, along with her husband Ratikanth Mohapatra, the institute ‘Srjan' founded by her legendary father-in-law at Bhubaneswar where she imparts training in pure Odissi to aspirants.

She will be performing on March 12 at 7.00 pm at Bhaskara auditorium within the Birla Science Centre (museum) at Adarsh Nagar. The proceeds from tickets in the denomination of Rs. 1,000 and Rs. 100 will be going towards funding of an economically challenged teacher of dance for the academic year 2012-13, a Trividya release states. For further details one can contact the Foundation at 9676664566/9866184890.
