  • ‘..Some magical Kathak elegance was conjured out of the smoke and mirror that set the stage for HATS, an epic solo by Urja Desai Thakore. ... I would have swapped it readily for just one more moment of magic from Urja Desai Thakore’

    (Graham Watts, The Place’s Resoultion! 2010)

  • ‘Five dancers emerged or were sucked again into this mass or black hole to a throbbing, powerful score…as a viewer, I needed to feel what the dancers were going through and it worked well...’

    (Malcolm Keen, Pulse magazine)

  • ‘Thakore in particular captivated me with a magnetic solo stretching invisible intolerance to a breaking point between her hands.’

‘"When I let go of myself, I become what I might be"- Lao Tzo. Deotx, a new work by Pagrav dance Company and Urja Desai Thakore. A contemporary work exploring the notion of excess and toxicity.
