Workshops and Events > Past Workshops and Activities Workshop on Odissi and Chhau with Raka Maitra and Chowk Productions

ISEAA invited the renowned Indian classical and contemporary dancer Raka Maitra, along with her dance assistant Caroline Chin of Chowk Productions to conduct a five-day workshop on two Indian classical dance forms, namely, Odissi and Chhau. The programme was part of a course module called ‘Dance Techniques: Asian Dance and Movement’ and was attended by Year 2 students from the School of Dance.

The workshop touched on the history and aesthetics of Odissi, including an introduction to Tribangh, and Pallavi (using a short excerpt of Vasanth Pallavi). Student participants practiced the basic Chhau exercises, Chowk and Tribangh steps. To demonstrate the students' understanding, they were involved in a short presentation on the last day of the programme.
