Choreographer Maitreyee Pahari
Choreographer Maitreyee has presented her choreography widely all over India and abroad, for over twenty years. She has been specially commissioned to present programmes by the Govt. of India and various other organizations. Awarded the Charles Wallace Fellowship (UK) in 2003, she visited England and Scotland for dance workshops, choreographic collaborations and performances. She has her own repertory.
Company The company’s energy is devoted to experiment, innovate and juxtapose traditional forms with other forms - drawing inspiration from the former without distorting their individual characteristics, to lend the final presentation a classical touch. These experiments and innovations have yielded rich dividends, in the form of novel choreographies and other interactive collaborations, which were well received by the connoisseurs and critics alike.
Performance Different theme based contemporary presentation, based on Kathak, Martial Dances & Mayurbhanj Chhau.
