Odissi Odyssey Conference

Conference poster that reads: Sadhana Art and Philosophy of Curvilinearity

Join Atkins Library and the Department of Dance for the 2023 Odissi Odyssey conference on South Asian dance. This year's theme is "Sadhana: Art and Philosophy of Curvilinearity," focusing on daily dance practice. The conference will engage with traditional configuration and proposition while infusing it with social justice initiatives, such as anti-caste, anti-racist, anti-imperialist, anti-capitalist, and anti-classist resistance.

Odissi Odyssey will take place August 1-6, both virtually and in-person, with a performance at Charlotte Cirque and Dance Center on August 5. Register to attend and learn more at
