Movement in exile is very proud to present a world class performance with Sujata Mohapatra, one of the most eminent exponents of in Odissi- East Indian classical dance. A distinguished danseuse of Odissi, Srimati Sujata Mohapatra has made a mark for herself among the present generation of dancers and has won whole-hearted applause from audiences and critics alike. As the disciple and daughter-in-law of the late guru Padmavibhushan Kelucharan Mohapatra, the legendary exponent of Odissi, she inherited his devotion and passion for the classical dance form. Eighteen years of rigorous training under the guidance of her guru eventually molded her into a graceful performer. Her dance is particularly noteworthy for her strict adherence to her guru's style and vision and for her lyrical movements which perfectly epitomize the grace and technical perfection of the Kelucharan Mohapatra gharana/style. Widely traveled over the world as a soloist, Sujata has also been a leading dancer in most of her guru's great choreographies.

Apart from being an excellent performer, Srimati Sujata Mohapatra is also actively involved in teaching Odissi and she conducts workshops in various places throughout India and internationally. At Srjan, the institute founded by Guru Kelucharan Mohapatra for imparting training in Odissi, she works alongside her husband Ratikant Mohapatra to carry on their Guru’s legacy.

In recognition of her contribution to the field of Odissi, she has received the Pandit Jasraj Award from Mumbai, the Mahari Award from the Pankaj Charan Das Foundation, the second Sanjukta Panigrahi Award from Washington DC, the Raaza award from Raaza Foundation, New Delhi and the Aditya Birla Kala Kiran Award from Mumbai among others.
