Chhau Dance -- Anandam (Editorial)

Title:Chhau Dance -- Anandam (Editorial)
Author:Anand, Mulk Raj
Enumeration:Vol. 22 Issue no. 1; December 1968, p. 2-4
Abstract:The Chhau dance -- so-called because of the mask or shadow -- is an ancient form of ritualistic folk classical expression which survives in Seraikela (Bihar) and Mayurbhanj (Orissa). It is intimately connected with the Chaitra festival, and is a spontaneous expression of joy (anandam). In the new socio-economic set up, the dance needs to travel beyond its traditional geographical limits, to spread an urban awareness.
