Orissa Dance Academy presents Odissi dance performance SIDDHARTHA, a production project supported by the Ministry of Culture, Govt. of India, New Delhi. Siddhartha, the lead protagonist of Nobel laureate Harman Hesse’s epical novel Siddhartha, goes in search of truth following Indian way of life ascending the famous four steps- Dharma, Artha, Kama and Mokshya.  Taking inspiration from his story line we adopted a different choreographic model to present Siddhartha’s journey as a seeker and his experiment with truth from a dancer’s point of view.
