'... as a viewer, I needed to feel what the dancers were going through and it worked well...' (Malcolm Keen, Pulse magazine)
Pagrav’s new work is set amidst the chaos, creativity and colour of the Uttarayan kite festival. Through tales of competition, danger, excitement and unity, Kattam Katti explores the parallels between this fiercely competitive event and deeply divided societies, echoing the current global climate.
With striking set design, and interaction between the dancers and musicians, Urja’s stunning vision marks a new age of neo classicism that is sure to delight all ages.
