Dance link

“… danced a “Chasing Shadows” solo that brought the house down. Her sources are splendidly hybrid: contemporary dance, the Kathak technique of north India, the female temple-court artists of south India.” -Alastair Macaulay, NYTimes

“..a young Indian Classical dancer whose strong edge and respect for tradition add up to an exciting appeal with a difference. Rarely has the idea of tradition as a springboard for innovation been presented so persuasively.” -Anna Kisselgoff, NYTimes

“…virtuosically rhythmic turns of the traditional genre alternated with an entirely modern, often expressionist, use of the torso and limbs.” -NY Times

“…an internal dialogue about tradition and modernity, as well as a statement of the resilience of women.”- NY Times
