A fusion of Manipuri dances
Patakatha is a dance drama which incorporates the four styles of Manipuri dance. It was performed by Poushali Chatterji and Nandanik Mainpuri dance Academy from Manipur. The story of this performance was based on the story of the tale of Potua or Chitrakar (rural Painters) whose art is under threat in this cyber age.
