Sculptures in Motion is an Odissi dance repertoire that takes you on a journey into the ancient temples of Odisha bringing alive the history, sculptures and paintings through vibrant dance and storytelling.
Odissi, is a graceful dance from the eastern Indian state of Orissa, that creates rhythmic patterns, melodic emotions and tells stories of love and devotion.
Mouli has been has been intensively trained under the personal tutelage of the legendary Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra. She continues to train under the guidance of eminent dancer Nandini Ghoshal in India and regularly attends workshops by Master teachers.
Recently she attended workshops on contemporary movement techniques under the guidance of Emma James of Blip Collective in Ladendorf Austria to explore ways to integrate the thought process in her original work.
Mouli is the founder and director of Upasana Odissi Inc. a Non-Profit Organization for the promotion and preservation of Odissi. The organization offers instructions for an affordable fee, organizes free concerts open to the public and performs at fundraising concerts.
In April 2016 her first original work “Sheva..my precious Treasures”was premiered featuring over 40 performers. The innovative approach to presenting Indian dance with an universal appeal was well received with a standing ovation.
