The sacred dancers
of Lord Krishna
For centuries in India, the Gotipua dance tradition has survived in the small village of Raghurajpur.
In oriya language, "goti" means "single", and "pua" means "boy".
This unique dance from Orissa is only performed by young acrobat boys dressing up as female
to praise Lord Krishna.
From the 10th to the 13th of June 2010, the Gotipua Dancers
were performing in Paris
at the Quai Branly Museum.
