Odissi

Odissi, also referred to as Orissi in older literature, is a major ancient Indian classical dance that originated in the Hindu temples of Odisha – an eastern coastal state of India.
Odissi is traditionally a dance-drama genre of performance art, where the artist(s) and musicians play out a mythical story, a spiritual message or devotional poem from the Hindu texts, using symbolic costumes body movement, abhinaya (expressions) and mudras (gestures and sign language) set out in ancient Sanskrit literature.
Modern Odissi productions by Indian artists have presented a diverse range of experimental ideas, culture fusion, themes, and plays.
