“A tree that has come to flower or fruit will not be cut down; it is treated as a mother, a woman who has given birth” — Indian poet AK Ramanujan on the Flowering Tree.
“I have never seen anything quite like Aparna Sindhoor’s company, Navarasa Dance Theatre, in action. There is not only a fusing of dance and theatre, here, but even within the different arts an explosive fusion of cultures.The dance is definitely rooted in the traditional, but they have incorporated into the movement elements from occidental modern dance (there is a stunning pas de deux that would be at home with Alvin Ailey’s company) and even more eclectic suggestions than that.” — Gaëtan L. Charlebois’s review, Montreal, Canada
