“We were truly transported to a far away place...dynamic music, intricate movements, percussive detailed footwork impressed a story that was well thought out and executed. There was such a synergistic marriage between every element of the performance...It was easy to get wrapped up into whatever aspect of the performance you wanted to.”
-Raquel Lake, Dance Metro DC

"Kasi’s version tried to go beyond the specificity of the ‘Amba Shikhandi’ story, to extend its significance onto a larger canvas of life. He used narration in between the episodes, abstraction during Amba’s suffering and a theatrical technique of shifting role-play within scenes, to achieve this. And he succeeded...It was a well-rehearsed performance...It was done so intelligently "
- Rupa Srikant, The Hindu
“Danced in gorgeous synchronicity with each other and the music...the nuanced gestures in the work came across wonderfully, and that they were in such wonderful unison with each other elevated the work...they succeeded on all levels.”
