5th Padamashree Maguni Das Memorial Gotipua Dance Festival-2018 in Bhubaneswar


Bhubaneswar: The two-day Maguni Das Memorial Gotipua dance festival organised by Raghurajpur’s Dasabhuja Gotipua Nrutya Parishad began at Jayadev Bhawan, here on Monday.

In the guise of girls, young boys entertained audience and presented different techniques of the dance form.

The festival is an attempt to provide patronage to the age-old dance tradition that has been marginalised due to lack of support from the Government and society.

The institution has been working towards popularising the dance form over the last two decades by training Gotipua dancers.
