Foundational Masculine / Shiva Postures

Define Choka = square, represents Jagannath, Orissa’s Universal Master Consciousness Diety

Shiva = Universal Masculine Principle = foundation, structure, stabilizing

Part 2:   Tribunghi: A, B, C’s of Odissi

Fluid Feminine / Shakti Postures

Tri= 3   Bunghi = bends

Shakti = Universal Feminine Creative Energy = sensual, wavelike, dynamic patterns

This Odissi choreography combines Part 1 & 2 including ritual, devotional expression, Herstorical lineage celebration.
