Summary: The 3rd International Odissi Festival was organised by IPAP between December 26 - 30, 2006 in Bhubaneswar. Dedicated to the memory of Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, the festival also saw the construction of a gigantic open-air dance theatre in the Utkal Sangeet Mahavidyalaya campus. The daylong performances included leading and upcoming Odissi dancers. The festival also made space for seminars, Odissi music and lecture demonstrations.
Kala Vikash Kendra is an institute for Odissi dance in Cuttack. It was set up by Babulal Doshi and others in 1952. Many Odissi luminaries taught there in its heyday, including Kelucharan Mohapatra.
Here, the dancers perform an Oriya abhinaya.
