Educational Trip to Purulia for the students of Media Science and Journalism

Educational Trip to Purulia-355

The department of Media Science and Journalism, Brainware University, organised an educational trip to Purulia. The departmental students documented the life and livelihood of mask makers of Purulia during the three-day-long educational trip to the land of mask-makers &. Purulia is the land of Chau, a prominent dance form that has made the land artistically fertile for centuries. A judicious mix of dance, drama and acrobatics are performed by the Chau dancers, the art being inherited from the ancestors, said a sixty-year-old Chau performer. The masks are iconic and are the hallmark of Purulia Chau. The generations of mask makers have been dedicating their creativity to keep the tradition alive since the inception of Chau.
