Zofia Lichota from Poland is set to perform Odissi dance, ‘Mahabhutas – Between Air and Earth’ at CD Deshmukh Auditorium, India International Centre, on January 20. She has been under Guru Ranjana Gauhar’s guidance for over the last 10 years.
Zofia sees herself as the flag bearer of Indian Classical Dance form – Odissi in Poland, making this dance form popular overseas. She has showcased hundreds of performances in Poland and abroad which were organized in cooperation with Indian Embassy in Poland.
Mahabhutas is a solo Odissi performance exploring the profound connection between the elements of air and earth. Through five traditional choreographies, accompanied by a live orchestra, Zofia takes the audience on a journey through the divine power of air, the life-giving essence of earth, and the deep emotions that arise from their interplay.
Whilst marching forward towards creating waves and promoting Indian Dance and Culture, Ranjana ji remarks, “Dance is an Art that imprints on the soul. It is with you every moment, it expresses itself in everything you do”
In Zofia’s words, “It’s all about sharing our true love and appreciation for the created world and people. To enjoy and understand human feelings better and most importantly not be afraid of different emotions which are part of our daily life”.
