About The Event
Trigunitam or Three will be presented as trios as well as solos and will feature a mix of new choreography and traditional repertoire pieces. The dancers are from the UK, India and Malaysia and from two different styles of Odissi - the Kelucharan Mohapatra style and the Pankajcharan Das style.
NATALIE ROUT has been trained in ballet, tap, modern and classical Indian dance from the age of two. Having started her dance journey with ballet, the first Indian classical dance style that she experienced was Bharatnatyam and then she took up Kathak alongside it. After a few years, while attending a course under Padmashree Madhavi Mudgal, she decided to specialise in Odissi. Natalie has received 2 Milapfest scholarships in the dance style of Odissi which she has been trained in by Guru Ratikant Mohapatra and Guru Sujata Mohapatra. More recently she has been named as one of the 'Top Ten Odissi Talents' at the international dance festival 'Odissi International 2012' and has performed at several international dance festivals.
TIYASHA DUTTA PAUL is an Odissi dancer and Independent Researcher from India. She is currently based in London and continues to learn under the guidance of her maternal uncle Sri Subikash Mukherjee in India and expands her repertoire under maestros of the field, the Late Padma Vibhushan Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra, Padma Shri Guru Madhavi Mudgal, Padma Shri Dr. Ileana Citaristi, Guru Sri Ratikanta Mohapatra and Guru Sujata Mohapatra through intensive workshops. She is a member of the International Council of Dance, a non-governmental organization founded in 1973 within the UNESCO headquarters in Paris and works under the umbrella Nrtiyasha, a dance collective in its nascence.
RAJA MASILAMANI first started his Odissi training with Ramli Ibrahim in Malaysia in his late teens. His true journey began under the tutelage of Shanker Bahera whose main style is that of Guru Pankajcharan Das. He continues this journey under Guru Sujata Mohapatra and Guru Madhavi Mudgal to refine all styles into one and to find his own voice in the form.
