Overview for Abhinaya-Candrika and Odissidance (In 2 Volumes)
The book presents "Abhinaya-Candrika' only Orissan text found exclusively devoted to Odissi Dance. In this work contemporary Odissi dance is compared with the text. For the first time this text sees the light of the day in its fully edited form. Odissi dance had crossed international borders since the mid fifties, this key book though referred by the exponents in all the practical applications, it was not available as a handbook to the dancers. This book was a long awaited dream to the Odissi practitioners and the teachers. Here a long felt need of the scholars and aficonados of the Odissi dance is met with. Like all the age old forms of art Odissi dance has its own share of ambiguities and area of obscurity. Here an humble attempt is made to explore, unveil and define the theories, terms and their contexts through the text â€˜Abhinaya-Candrikaâ€™ and the practicing form as it is seen today.
