‘..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.’
(The Wonderful World of Dance)
