Dear Friends,

It is fitting that in conjunction with International Women’s Day, we celebrate three women gurus/choreographers of Odissi. Odissi has been the vehicle of women dancers and their sculptures have been immortalised on the walls of temples of Odisha. When you come to Triple Frontiers you will also be able to partake in the Contemporary Odisha Textile Exhibition of Pankaja Sethi, another outstanding woman who is a textile expert. She values indigenous traditional weaving art and curates a compelling presentation that presents traditional weaving as being still relevant to the present times.
