Nrityagram's Surupa Sen and Bijayini Satpathy transport viewers to enchanted worlds of magic and spirituality with the sensuous flow of Odissi, the oldest of India's classical dance forms.

“A piece of temple sculpture come alive” The Hindu

With its sculpturesque forms, sinuous movements and emotional intensity, Odissi -- one of the oldest dance traditions in the world, speaks of love and union between human and divine. Surupa Sen and Bijayini Satpathy, the principal dancers of India's famed dance troupe Nrityagram transport us to enchanted worlds of magic and spirituality with solo and duet performances.
