“Nayika Ke Manobhav”  Concept

 

Odissi in its formative stage as part of

Jatra had the role on Nayika or heroine

performed by only men. Once the structuring

and framing of Odissi started by the Gurus

they created and performed items based on

Nyika Bedha. Today we find this aspect of

Odissi dance on a decline and there is a division

in the gender in Odissi presentations on stage.

In the present  times only female dancers are

performing Nayika based themes while the latter

shy’s away. To bridge the gap Vinod with the guidance

and under the watchful eyes of his

Guru-Padmashree Ranjana Gauhar, is attempting

to explore the tradition of the dancer who is a

devotee seeking the supreme. Thereby symbolising

with the Nayika who is eternally related to her

beloved, the Lord. These compositions are set to the

tune of the literary work of Jayadev, Surdas,

Swati Tirunal and Vidyapati.  Vinod will bring to

the stage the different emotional states of Nayika .
