Odissi – Deep Dive (1/3)

  1. One of the most distinguishing features of Odissi dance is the Tribhangi.
  2. The notion of Tribhangi divides the body into 3 parts: head, bust and torso.
  3. The postures dealing with these 3 elements are called “Tribhangi”.
  4. This concept has created the very characteristic poses which are more curvaceous than in other classical Indian dances.
