Shout Out > Chhau Dance Festival 2010


Seraikella Chhau

Chhau is a dance-drama form prevalent in Eastern India. There are three major forms of Chhau, each known by its geographic location. These are Purulia Chhau of West Bengal, Mayurbhanj Chhau of Orissa and Seraikella Chhau of Bihar (now Jharkhand). Although they are all known as Chhau, their styles differ considerably in terms of their cultural background and their dance characteristics. The festival will feature some of the most outstanding exponents representing each of the three traditions.

Keli Festival, scheduled on the 28th, 29th and 30th January 2010 at YB Chavan and Prithvi Theatre, will feature the different traditions of Chhau Dance.
