Breathtaking Odissi at 'Paramapara Vistaar'
By the time it was 6 p.m. the hall at Moksh was entirely occupied by
interested audiences, both locals and expatriates. The anxiety had
started to build up and with the increasing temperature of the room,
it was getting difficult to wait any longer for the show to begin. But as
soon as the beautiful sound of the ghungroos was heard, there was an
abrupt silence in the air. Four beautiful ladies, dressed in elaborate attire
entered the stage in a row and like children waiting for a magician's
trick, we all held our breath for the serene Odissi to begin.
As the first performance by the troupe began, it gripped the attention of all
the audience members. The symphony of the ghungroos and the movement
of their body along with the recorded music being played was breathtaking.
More profound were the expressions on their faces, which brought
the stories of the lyrics to life ensuring that the words didn't
matter. There were a total of five performances given; two
were solo performances, two group and one duet.
Another performance by the troupe was held in Army
Officers' Club, Sundhara, on 9 June.
