Summary: The 2nd International Odissi Festival was organised by IPAP between August 28 - 31, 2003, in Washington D.C. Dedicated to the memory of Guru Pankaj Charan Das, who passed away in June 2003, it brought together Odissi dancers and scholars from all over the world.
Trinayan or the third eye- is the nexus of divine energy of each human being. Founded as a Dance Theater officially in 2008, the company has been presenting performances, workshops and dance classes in the ancient style of Odissi dance as a collective for over 10 years in New York City. Trinayan's Odissi dance style hails from the Guru Deba Prasad Das Gharana. Today, the company has evolved into three core activities: a performance ensemble, professional training program, and our collaborations/outreach efforts.
Here they stage their deconstruction of Deba Prasad Das's iconic composition of sthai.
